Chilling. Even many days after reading WINTERGIRLS, I still shiver when I think about this book.

Lia has struggled with an eating disorder before. Her parents think that she is getting better, but she is just fooling everyone. When Cassie, who used to be her best friend, dies, Lia spirals out of control again.

She eats less and less and begins seeing Cassie's ghost everywhere.

WINTERGIRLS explores the world of eating disorders with vivid, horrifying detail.

Even though this book was really creepy, it was also spectacular. I had never understood how or why some people began to have eating disorders, and this book gave a spectacular insight into their state of mind.

Would Not Recommend. Ending Is Highly Impractical.

Although this book may be fast moving, the ending is utterly pointless. It has that perfect fairy tale ending, where everyone goes away all happy and better. In real life this is not what would happen. Furthermore, the book is not well written and the character's traits...
Although this book may be fast moving, the ending is utterly pointless. It has that perfect fairy tale ending, where everyone goes away all happy and better. In real life this is not what would happen. Furthermore, the book is not well written and the character's traits and points of view do not remain consistent.
