A moving memoir about overcoming anorexia and sexual abuse –  and becoming whole. 

Like most kids, Katie was a picky eater. She’d sit at the table in silent protest, hide uneaten toast in her bedroom, listen to parental threats she’d have to eat it for breakfast. But in any life, a set of circumstances can collide, and normal behavior can soon shade into something sinister, something deadly.
Lighter Than My Shadow is a hand-drawn story of struggle and recovery, a trip into the black heart of a taboo illness, an exposure of those who are so weak they prey on the weak, and an inspiration to anybody who believes in the human power to endure, and to eventually find happiness.
“Lighter Than My Shadow is gripping, thanks to its honesty and its disjunction between traumatic subject matter and sometimes childlike artwork.”
The Guardian
“It’s quite simply one of the greatest, certainly the most impressive and fully-formed, début comic works I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading…It’s a truly remarkable work, a memoir so powerful and affecting, a study of absolute desperation and a shining light of hope to any who suffer from similar.”

“It’s universal yet specific and those together make such strong medicine. Wow.” 
Joss Whedon

If Lighter Than My Shadow is an emotional wrecking ball, it also has a singular ability to rebuild and renew. There's a rawness to Green's cartooning that captures the beauty and pain of adolescence. And even more so, the unsung complexity of eating disorders and mental illness. This book is must-read for anyone who is, or has ever been, a teenager, and important for those who have had to make Green's brave journey themselves.
