Wintergirls - Laurie Halse Anderson What a gritty and indepth look into the mind of an eating disorder. I've read books that have dealt with a character dealing with an eating disorder, but have never read one where you feel as if you're going through it with her. Throughout this whole book you are right in the psyche of Lia where her disorder is not just a disorder, but a living, breathing organism. It's its own character. Definitely a hard book to read at times, but very well written.
