I am not sure what the other yes votes are referencing, but the only thing I can remember is the author discussing how her eyes look after her purging sessions

it is used in the context of quoting other people, and not at all shown in a positive light.

As you can probably guess from the title, that's a key theme in this book.

The author describes being coerced by her mother to shower together, under the supposed idea that her mother is examining her for cancer. The author dissociates each time.

It happens multiple times throughout the book and is usually in the context of an eating disorder.

Jennette's mother is in hospital a few times and inevitably does die in the hospital. There's a scene of her mother frantically begging not to go into surgery, and for someone who has been there, it's a hard scene to get through.

this is a nonfiction book. the violence is not necessarily a result of mental illness, but the person is undeniably mentally ill.

aside from the R word (used in the context of describing other people's words, not used by jennette herself) there is at least one instance of "narcissist" being used in a demeaning way which may upset those with NPD

There is a scene where a young prepubescent Jennette is objectified by "the costuming department" in bikini bathing suits though it's made clear it's for Dan Schneider's personal purposes. There is also a scene where Jennette turns 18 and he becomes explicitly sexual towards her in person.
