WOW Teen Reading Ambassadors Present Stephanie Elliot

Saturday, July 14, 2018 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Join the Worlds of Words Teen Reading Ambassadors as we welcome Stephanie Elliot, author of "Sad Perfect."

Sixteen-year-old Pea knows there has always been something wrong with the way she eats. When she's finally diagnosed with a little-known eating disorder called Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, her "picky eating" starts to make sense. Thanks to therapy, her loving yet dysfunctional family, and the support of her sweet and caring new boyfriend, Ben, Pea finally feels like she's in control for the first time in her life. But when she decides to go off her antidepressants, things start to spiral out of control. It will take inner strength and the support of her loved ones to get the help she needs to begin to challenge her eating disorder.

Worlds of Words encourages anyone who is considering applying to become a Teen Reading Ambassador to come to this event. Students in grades 9-12 can apply online.
