Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

Lia and Cassie were best friends for a very long time, but they haven’t talked in about three months. When Cassie turns up dead in a local motel — after calling and leaving 33 voicemail messages for Lia — Lia wonders whether she could have done anything to save Cassie. If that wasn’t bad enough, Lia has also just been released from an in-patient center for people with eating disorders. Lia’s body and brain are breaking down, so the fine line between fantasy and reality is getting pretty blurry. Is Cassie’s ghost really following her around and talking to her? And what, if anything, will finally help Lia realize that she is not fat, that food is not the enemy, and that the people who are forcing her to eat and attend therapy sessions are doing so out of love? A chilling story…

Happy Reading!
