Description

pLia and Cassie are best friends, wintergirls frozen in fragile bodies, competitors in a deadly contest to see who can be the thinnest. But then Cassie suffers the ultimate loss — her life — and Lia is left behind, haunted by her friend's memory and racked with guilt for not being able to help save her./ppIn her most powerfully moving novel since iSpeak/i, award–winning author Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia's struggle, her painful path to recovery, and her desperate attempts to hold on to the most important thing of all: hope./ppstrongPraise for iWintergirls/i/strong/pp"Necessary reading for anyone caught in a feedback loop of weight loss as well as any parent unfamiliar with the scripts teens recite so easily to escape from such deadly situations." — iBooklist/i, starred review/pp"Lia's agonizing battle with food, her family issues, old memories, and self–mutilation episodes are often difficult to read but also make the book impossible to put down." — iChildren's Literature/i/pp"Anderson perfectly captures the isolation and motivations of the anorexic without ever suggesting that depression and eating disorders are simply things to 'get over.'" — iKirkus/i/pp"As difficult as reading this novel can be, it is more difficult to put down." — iPublishers Weekly/i/p
