This is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading that talks about the books you have discovered in the past week. This book was given to me by a friend as she thought I would be interested, especially as I teach teenagers. I haven't read it yet, but it sounds intriguing.
by Laurie Halse Anderson
Lia and Cassie are best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies, competitors in a deadly contest to see who can be the skinniest. But what comes after size zero and size double-zero? When Cassie succumbs to the demons within, Lia feels she is being haunted by her best friend's restless spirit.
In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrically written book since the multiple-award-winning Speak, best-selling author Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia's descent into the powerful vortex of anorexia, and her painful path toward recovery.
