The Skinny challenges our beliefs about diet culture, body image and eating disorders as we follow Sheri in her fight to fully recover from anorexia with her signature wit, wry humour, and unflinching honesty.

In this powerful memoir, Sheri Segal Glick explores her rough, rocky, rutted road to being in recovery. As a young teenager, Sheri developed anorexia, and has battled the illness for decades. The Skinny explores her journey, from her tumultuous time as a teenager to the disease rearing its ugly head as an adult, with her signature wit, wry humour, and absolute honesty. Her unique story is matched by her unique style, and the memoir moves back and forth through time, through her experiences and through the moments in life where all there is to do is laugh.
