My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The concept of the challenge was intriguing: go for an entire year without looking at one's own image. Gruys was bold enough to allow the challenge to encompass her wedding day (a loophole was created for a once-over of the wedding photos).
Her background, especially working with groups that help women overcome destructive body issues (i.e. eating disorders), sets the tone for the book. I was impressed by her explaining technical terms as she used them. However, I feel it could have done well without most of the cussing.
The final chapters are full of insight as to the lessons Gruys learned throughout the process and those are well worth reading.

Shortly after beginning this book, I was looking for something to use as a bookmark and the first thing I saw was a postcard from some dentist (it may or may not have been mine). After actually looking at it, I realized how appropriate it was.
