Meet Rosie – a teenage girl with anorexia. Rosie invites readers to learn about anorexia and how it makes her see herself differently to how other people see her. She also introduces readers to Natalie who has bulimia, Ben who has selective eating problems and Beth who has AFRID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder). They all explain why they find food difficult and how their eating disorders are different.

This illustrated book is an ideal introduction to understanding the complex issues surrounding eating disorders. It shows family, friends and teachers how they can support a young person with an eating disorder and will also be a good place to start when encouraging open conversations about eating disorders at school or at home.

Can I tell you about…? The 'Can I tell you about…?' series offers simple introductions to a range of limiting conditions. Friendly characters invite readers to learn about their experiences of living with a particular condition and how they would like to be helped and supported. These books serve as excellent starting points for family and classroom discussions.
