Hello readers! I created this discussion guide for readers of Tall Story, my middle grade novel about a boy who is eight foot tall. I hope teachers, librarians and readers of my book will find it useful. You can let me know what you think by messaging me on the contact form of my website http://candygourlay.com. If you have suggestions for more reference materials for Tall Story, I would love to hear from you!

  • I have tried numerous times over the last 10 years to try & beat bulimia on my own with no luck. Coming across ur program online was the best thing I have done, knowing that all my thoughts & actions were the same as what you & many other people with bulimia had gone through or are going through made me realize I'm not crazy & I wasn't alone in this. The thought of bingeing or purging rarely enters my mind anymore if it does its for a split second & I'm able to push it right back out again. I'm eating normally again everything in moderation, no dieting enjoying food which I hadn't for a long time being kind to my body & loving myself. I have now been in recovery with no relapses for over 6 months I never thought I would be able to overcome this but I'm so happy & proud to say I'm finally free ◆◆◆ http://ishbv.com/bulimiarec/pdf
