Just can't stop thinking about it

Wintergirls... I'm not sure there are any words that effectively describe the physical and emotional response I had while reading this. The story is painful and horrible to read... but you just.. can't... stop.
Laurie Halse Anderson never fails to disappoint- I think her writing is only getting better. If you haven't read it yet, I recommend moving it to the top of the must read pile.

I second that. I've also given it to several other people and they've not been able to put it down.

Just WOW.

And I LOVED the ending. It's so rare that I love the end of any book.


A psychologist I know made a comment that a book like this might push a recovering anorexic to start starving herself again. Maybe I'm too optimistic, but I don't see it that way at all. I thought it was rather hopeful.
