A Portrait for Toni by Annette Lyon-Lds fiction book review

I really enjoyed reading this ebook by Annette Lyon.
I knew something wasn't right with the main character Toni's eating habits since I have studied alot about personal exercising and eating; so I wasn't surprised that early on in the book it addresses her eating disorder. What I didn't know was how serious an eating disorder can and is for alot of people. I thought it was something that could be overcome and not have to be dealt with again-like Chad, the other character in the book thought. I'm glad I got to know more about the seriousness of food addictions and disorders.
I liked the character dynamics of the book but I did feel that Chad's constant love-sickness over the years towards Toni was a bit much and seemed a little "high school drama-ish". I liked that this book showed alot of emotions for both Chad and Toni and their story felt very real. I loved reading about their life passions of drawing and dance. Easy clean reading!

Book Description

 September 4, 2013
Toni has no idea what she’d do without her best friend, Carter. Who else would she be able to vent to about her parents, her job at the dance studio, or her latest relationship woes? When Toni’s father lands in the hospital, Carter, as always, is there for her.

That is, until he starts questioning Toni, saying he thinks she has an eating disorder. Then she starts dating Clint, the hot new guy at the studio, and somehow that puts a deeper wedge between her and Carter. When she’s hospitalized after an on-stage collapse, and Carter stupidly starts in with advice about food and weight, she sends him away—then instantly regrets it.

One night after a performance, Toni tries to mend the hurt between them. Instead of finding Carter, she stumbles onto proof that he has feelings for her that go way beyond those of a friend. Toni is left with the very real prospect of losing Carter forever, unless somehow she can return his feelings—but that’s impossible.

Isn’t it?
