The Disappearing Girl - by Heather Topham Wood

Hello, lovely people of the page! Jo here! I'm excited to announce the release of Ms. Heather Topham Wood's book, The Disappearing Girl.

I did the proofread for INDIE Books Gone Wild on this book. All I have to say is: "Wow. What a heartbreaking tale!"

Without further ado, I give you the cover, links, and summary:

Kayla Marlowe is slowly vanishing…

Last year, Kayla’s world imploded. Her beloved father died, leaving her alone with a narcissistic mother who is quick to criticize her daughter’s appearance. During her winter break from college, Kayla’s dangerous obsession with losing weight begins.

Kayla feels like her world changes for the better overnight. Being skinny seems to be the key to the happiness she has desperately been seeking. Her mother and friends shower her with compliments, telling her how fantastic she looks. Kayla is starving, but no one knows it.

Cameron Bennett explodes into Kayla’s life. He’s sexy and kind—he has every quality she has been looking for in a guy. As Cameron grows closer to Kayla and learns of how far she’s willing to go to stay thin, he becomes desperate to save her.

Kayla’s struggles with anorexia and bulimia reach a breaking point and she is forced to confront her body image issues in order to survive. She wonders if Cameron could be the one to help heal her from the pain of her past.

***New Adult Contemporary-Ages 17+ due to language and sexual situations.

I do hope you'll all go check it out. As always, when a book with work by one of us gets published, it gets a link on the sidebar. So if you don't get a chance to check it out today, come on back anytime and grab a copy. You won't be sorry.

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!
