Synopsis

The New York Times bestselling story of a friendship frozen between life and death

Lia 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. In her most powerfully moving novel since Speak, 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.

This book is amazing. I could read it ten times in a row and still be taken in by the bone chilling and accurate descriptions of what a person may feel with an eating disorder.

I read this book first when I just came out, I am now re reading it and I still love this book. From someone who suffers with the same problems, it is very emotional and powerful.

I loved this book a lot!!! But I wish it would be a little longer but that wouldn't knock a star off. I enjoyed it because it never got boring. I was always excited and anxious to know what would happen next! I stay up at night till the sun rises and even after that! Just to read this amazing book! Definitely one of my favorites!

At the moment I picked up Wintergirls I had no idea what the book was about. I went in completely blind. I didn't expect that it would be such a powerful and emotional read. But it was. There were moments when I wanted to shake some sense into Lia. Other moments my greatest desire was to take Lia by the hand and tell her that everything would be alright. I wanted to guide her to the help she so desperately needed. The only thing she needed to do was just accept it. No catch involved. I was completely emotionally invested in this novel. Laurie did such an exceptional job in portraying Lia's self-destruction. I felt her pain and her desperation to the core. My heart was breaking and crying out for Lia because I couldn't do anything to help her. I'm a super huge fan of happy endings and although this one doesn't have a supreme happy ending it leaves us with hope and the realization that life is definitely worth fighting for, no matter how bad you think you have it. Hope that from here on, things will be better. My heart goes out to all the girls going through the same situation that Cassie and Lia are going through in Wintergirls. This is definitely a book worth picking up. This is the first novel I've read by Laurie Halse Anderson and it will no be the last.
