'I know how anorexia makes you feel: you think she is your friend, you think she can solve everything and make you feel amazing ... but she will destroy you and everything around you, piece by piece.' - Hope Virgo.


For four years, Hope managed to keep it hidden, keeping dark secrets from friends and family. But then, on 17th November 2007, Hope's world changed forever. She was admitted to a mental health hospital. Her skin was yellowing, her heart was failing. She was barely recognizable. Forced to leave her family and friends, the hospital became her home. Over the next year, at her lowest ebb, Hope faced the biggest challenge of her life. She had to find the courage to beat her anorexia.


In Stand Tall Little Girl, Hope shares her harrowing, yet truly inspiring, journey. Through her letters and diary entries, Hope tells us how she fought from rock bottom to beat the `friend' that had controlled and nearly destroyed her life. The story of Hope's recovery will inspire countless others.
