"She called me."
What is the cover like? You'll have to peak at amazon!

Title: Wintergirls
Author: Laurie Halse Anderson
Age: 15+
Rating: 5 of 5

Lia is very sick. Not in the cough-cough cold sort of way. You see, Lia is starving herself. She is never satisfied with her weight. 110, 104, 98, 90 pounds are all to much. To add to her problems Lia's former BFF has just died of complications due to her eating disorder. Cassie called Lia thirty-three times that night. Lia didnt answer. Now Cassie is haunting her. Can Lia heal? Does she even want to?

I really enjoyed this book. Laurie Halse Anderson is an incredible author who can get inside the minds of her charectors. The book is rated 12 and up but I'd say 12 is to young. Some parts of this novel were so dark and graphic that even I was feeling sick. Through out the story eating disorders and self mutilation were prominent. Death is also a large aspect. Not a book for the faint of heart.

Overall grade:
