Catherine is a fifteen year old schoolgirl who wishes she could just be that little bit more popular, and is sure that once she improves herself, everything will be brilliant, the taunts will stop, and everyone will accept her for who she is. Her new year's resolution is to lose weight, just like many of her friends. But whereas her friends tire quickly of their diets, Catherine is fuelled by self loathing and gets the results she wants - fast. She can't stop, and her diet rapidly becomes a nightmarish cycle of starving and tortuous exercise routines. As her body shuts down and begins to break, Catherine can feel her grip on life slipping away, and realise she doesn't want to die. But anorexia is an illness that doesn't like being cured, and how do you get better when you're the germ for your own disease?
