Book Review: Wintergirls, by Laurie Halse Anderson (2009, Penguin)
Lia and Cassie were best friends with a deadly competition: who could be thinner. Their parents separated the two after a near-fatal accident; months later, Lia learns that Cassie’s body has been discovered, alone, in a hotel room; she also discovers that Cassie called her cell phone 33 times on the night she died. Already fighting her inner demons, Cassie’s death haunts Lia.
