Trigger Warnings: eating disorder, mental illness, self-harm, death

Lia and Cassie are best friends, wintergirls frozen in fragile bodies, competitors in a deadly contest to see who can be the thinnest. Lia struggles to cope with her mental illness while balancing everything else in her life. Months after a falling out, Lia finds out Cassie has died from bulimia. This causes Lia a lot of guilt, and pushes her to confront her own illness.

In her most powerfully moving novel since Speak, awardwinning author Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia’s struggle, her painful path to recovery, and her desperate attempts to hold on to the most important thing of all—hope.
