Eisha Marjara talks about how she wrote her YA novel Faerie
on CBC Radio 1's "The Next Chapter" with Shelagh Rogers.
"I wanted to explore how [Lila] became anorexic, and that's how I developed this creature that she has invented called a faerie. This creature developed within her as she grew older from childhood to adolescence. And it takes over her identity, and it becomes her. It's kind of a poetic metaphor for anorexia."
