Wintergirls

"Dead girl walking," the boys say in the halls. "Tell us your secret," the girls whisper, one toilet to another. I am that girl. I am the space between my thighs, daylight shining through. I am the bones they want, wired on a porcelain frame. 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 friend's restless spirit. In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrically written book since the multiple-award-winning Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia's descent into the powerful vortex of anorexia, and her painful path toward recovery.

h, vilken helt underbar bok. I brjan strde jag mig en liten aning p det stilistiska men det passar huvudkaraktren och storyn nr man vl lrt knna henne. r vldigt snl med mina femmor men den var verkligen s bra att jag lg vaken till fyra p natten och lste, totalt ovetande om vad klockan var.
