"Anorexic Alice in Hungerland" by Cathy was an amazing article included in Teen Ink's January issue. The article is informative, but isn't a bore to read. I love the comparison to Alice in Wonderland, as I would have never though of it myself. Even though a real existing issue is presented, this piece of writing is still in a style of a story. It was very suspenseful and had a somewhat eerie tone. The twist at the end was another thing I favored about the article.

Way to spread the word, Cathy! Really, anorexia is becoming a big problem in the United States. It's articles like these that make teens want to read about the problem and raise awareness. This was a very touching read I much enjoyed.
