"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. "

I have worked in the field of adolescent psychiatry and with anorectics. This story described the inner world of the anorectics and the cutters pretty well and I could also emphathize with the feelings of the parents of Lia and Cassie. Lia's struggle was heart-wrenching to follow.
I found this book on tchaikovsky's Top 3 -wishlist and offered to mail it to the US next.

I just received this in the mail from lukutuoli - thank you!
I've been wanting to read this book for quite a while now, but haven't had an opportunity until now. I can't wait to begin reading! I may offer this as a bookring/bookray if there's enough interest shown, but first, I'm going to read it for myself.
Will read & release ASAP :)
