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.
