Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson...
Rating: 5 stars
In my oppinon all the books that Laurie Halse Anderson writes are amazing and really eye-opening, and this book "Wintergirls" is no exception. I thought the character of Lia was very well written and even though I have never suffered from anorexia I still found Lia to be very relateable, I also liked the other characters in the book like her stepsister Emma and I also liked Elijah. I found that this book really did tell a realistic story-as do all her other books-about the disease of anorexia and how it doesn't just affect the person suffering from the illness but also the people around them. Over all I thought this book was amazing and it should definitley be on your To-Read list along with another of her books called "Speak" which is the book she is most known for and that is definitley for a good reason.
