There were two beautiful girls and they were best friends. Their names were Lia and Cassie. All will be ordinary if they won’t be wintergirls frozen in bodies of matchstick, they had a competition, who will be more thinner? But their size was less than double-zero. When Cassie succumbs to the demons within, Lia feels she is being haunted by her friend's restless spirit.
In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrically written book since the multiple-award-winning Speak, best-selling author Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia's descent into the powerful vortex of anorexia, and her painful path toward recovery.

They grit their teeth and wince when the mon- sters throw them against the mountain, but they always, always get back up, retie their red scarves and laugh. All...
