So this week's book that is for Thinkin' About Thursday is:
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
“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.
I loved Speak and the issue that it dealt with, so I figured that Wintergirls would be just as good. I have had to deal with that so many of the problems that Anderson writes about. I like how her stories make you relate to the characters. I can't wait till it comes out!
