❝The worst kind of wars are the ones of which you're unaware you're fighting. The worst kinds are the ones where you genuinely think you're happy, safe, but then you look down and find a dagger in your chest, and it's too late. You're bleeding out.❞
- Brenna Violet

Jessica Fanner is a victim of Ana Nervosa, also known as Anorexia. She doesn't see it that way, though. In her eyes, in her mind, Anorexia is a girl that reflects every one of her insecurities. Ana is who she wants to be the most, and soon she finds herself being numb as she starves herself. But when a cruel plot twist is thrown into the mix, things inevitably worsen, allowing Ana to have a tighter grip on her friend. 

Will Jessica be strong enough to get herself out of Anorexia's claws, or will she succumb in her power?

I really wish I was skinny... I want to be so tiny people want to gental with me In fear I'd snap...
Didn't this used to be titled Her Name Is Ana? With the bulimia one being called Her Name Is Mia?

Why? Why does her Pro Ana have to be her, but "better". This makes me disappointed in her mental stability, but then again, she was young.

I usually don’t like the idea of ana being personified, but so far you do it really well. Your writing  feels very clean and nice.
