Dead girl walking, the boys say in the halls.

Tell us your secret, the girls whisper, one toilet to another.

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 were best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies. But now Cassie is dead. Lia's mother is busy saving other people's lives. Her father is away on business. Her stepmother is clueless. And the voice inside Lia's head keeps telling her to remain in control, stay strong, lose more, weigh less. If she keeps on going this way - thin, thinner, thinnest - maybe she'll disappear altogether.

In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrical book since the National Book Award finalist Speak, best-selling author Laurie Halse Anderson explores one girl's chilling descent into the all-consuming vortex of anorexia. Download and start listening now!

    " I felt it was too rushed at the end. It seemed too easy. "

    " Incredible. Life changing for me personally. This book should be required reading in high schools everywhere. Anderson gives speakers to the noise in Lia's head so that readers understand her motivation and her pain. Moving, important, beautiful... "

    " This book was very well written. I really liked how the author added little "stylistic quirks", as she called them, as they gave me an insight into the mind of Cassie, the protagonist. Though some think it disrupts the flow, I think it kind of facilitates it. It was also interesting how winter was used as an extended metaphor for Cassie's eating disorder. I'll spoil the book if I say anything more about that, so go read it yourself if you're sure it won't be a trigger for you. "
