Preview: ‘Nervosa’ by Hayley Gold searches for hope amid disordered eating and the health care system

Check out a preview of the new graphic novel from Street Noise Books.

Courtesy of Street Noise Books, we’re pleased to share this preview of Nervosa, the new graphic novel from Hayley Gold.

Nervosa is available now. You can check out the cover, a preview and the description from the publisher below.
