'I read it in a gulp. I seem to know this girl.' -- Helen Garner 'Stark, poetic, truthful, compassionate; self-knowledge comes at a breathtaking pace.' -- Carmel Bird 'Addictive, powerful and raw, Losing It lays bare the unflinching realities for a teenager trapped in a spiral of self-destruction. Who does not see some of herself in Josie, a heroine for our uncertain times?' -- Rebecca Starford
