Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

My Rating: 5 stars

Warning: Rated PG-13

This book is absolutely amazing. Anderson tells an emotional story of a girl named Lia who is trapped in the eating disorder anorexia. All she can think about is food. How much she’s going to eat. How many calories? How much she weighs. All she cares about is food and less about what is actually going on in her life. Cassie, Lia’s best friend died. The thought of it being all her fault makes Lia starve herself more. As Lia’s story unravels, she loses more weight, loses touch with her family, and almost loses her sanity.

Wintergirls is probably my favorite book by Laurie. The way its written is so original and the storyline is just so great! You HAVE to read it!
& I think I read Fever back in 6th grade, I’ve been meaning to read it again soon.

I’m with you. I thought Wintergirls was extraordinary. Laurie Halse Anderson can say so much with just a few words!
