“Dead girl walking,” the boys say. “Tell us your secret,” the girls whisper.
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 in this way – thin, thinner, thinnest – maybe she’ll disappear altogether… Published in the US to outstanding critical acclaim, this is a lyrically told and utterly chilling account of a girl’s descent into the all-consuming vortex of anorexia, written by the Carnegie Medal shortlisted author of Chains.
