Overall rating 4. Yes No Thanks for your feedback! Report as inappropriate. Its such a good book … Show more Show less. I loved this book a lot!!! But I wish it would be a little longer but that wouldn't knock a star off. I enjoyed it because it never got boring. I was always excited and anxious to know what would happen next! I stay up at night till the sun rises and even after that! Just to read this amazing book!
Definitely one of my favorites! I read this book first when I just came out, I am now re reading it and I still love this book. From someone who suffers with the same problems, it is very emotional and powerful. For my birthday i got a kobo i am just starting to read it anits prety good zo far and hopefully its good … Show more Show less. This book is amazing. I could read it ten times in a row and still be taken in by the bone chilling and accurate descriptions of what a person may feel with an eating disorder.

I can remember reading a book when I was around her age which made the dangers of anorexia and bulimia stick in my mind crystal clear, but cannot for the life of me remember the title. So, off I went on google looking for it, but found Wintergirls instead. I had this read in 24 hours.
It isn't a long book for me considering the font size, but it also gripped me that I wanted to read it and find out the rest of the story and how Lia was going to fare and cope with the loss of Cassie on top of dealing with her issues before Cassie passed.
The last few chapters had me in a grasp very few books get me into. I in no way can understand how this book would spur someone to not be at least slightly horrified as to what they are doing to their bodies and mental health and continue to carry on with either illness - which they may for a time - but the words and story will stick with them in the back of their minds as it reveals dangers they will continue to think of.
Good, gripping and compelling read. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. 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? There have been plenty of books that I have read that I have thought that were really good and have rated them 5 stars.
But then occasionally, not that often, a book comes along and absolutely takes your breath away. It makes you sit up and take notice. It also makes you realize that maybe all of the other books that you rated 5 stars were nothing close to the real thing. Laurie Halse Anderson's Wintergirls is exactly that kind of book. This was recommended to me several months ago as part of a book club but for some reason I just didn't get around to reading it. Well I finally started it 2 days ago and when I did I didn't stop reading it until I was done.
The characters were so real, so ugly at times, and so raw. The protagonist Lia, is anorexic and has just lost her best friend who died alone in a motel room. Lia is haunted by the fact that she has 33 missed calls from her friend Cassie and feels a great deal of guilt over her death.

For Cassie was just as sick as Lia Cassies starts haunting Lia and wants Lia to join her on the other side. To avoid the ghost Lia stops sleeping and starts exercising excessively.
She only eats calories a day. Lia grows lanugo, baby fine hair, to hold in her body heat for she is always freezing. Lia cannot read anymore because she cannot thing right to make out the words. Lia has become a Wintergirl, a person lost between both worlds, and Cassie is waiting for her on the other side. There were some ugly facts presented about anorexia.
It wasn't pretty. I'm glad Anderson didn't make it pretty.
Maybe some teenager will read this book and take a different path. About the supporting characters Can you not see that she is sick! She needs your attention! Give it to her and get her to a hospital! It was obvious Lia couldn't control her parents divorce, her father's remarriage, her mother's controlling indifference. So she sought control elsewhere. Well she got it. And she so wanted the attention of someone and no adult in her life saw it.
The only one who saw it was her 9 year old stepsister who told her friends that Lia had cancer to cover up the truth.
