Elena Vanishing: A Memoir
Elena Dunkle, Clare B. Dunkle
Seventeen-year-old Elena is vanishing. Every day means renewed determination, so every day means fewer calories. This is the story of a girl whose armor against anxiety becomes artillery against herself as she battles on both sides of a lose-lose war in a struggle with anorexia.
Told entirely from Elena’s perspective over a five-year period and co-written with her mother, award-winning author Clare B. Dunkle, Elena’s memoir is a fascinating and intimate look at a deadly disease and a must read for anyone who knows someone suffering from an eating disorder.
Clare B. Dunkle is an award-winning author of seven acclaimed fantasy novels, including The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy, winner of the 2004 Mythopoeic Award for Best Childrens Fantasy. A former Texan (and Texas librarian), Clare now lives in Germany, but comes frequently to the United States to see her family, especially her two daughters, Valerie and Elena, and her grandchildren.
