Elle Nash’s novel, Gag Reflex, takes place on Live Journal and chronicles a young woman’s transition into adulthood and her struggles with body dysmorphia and an eating disorder. It’s an extremely fast read and feels like an artifact of the early 2000s. Dark as the character’s struggles are, the book maintains dark humor and prurient action to keep readers from despair. It also contains a classic mall metal playlist.
