Product description

“Dead girl walking,” the boys say. “Tell us your secret,” the girls whisper.

Raw and shocking: a book that pulls no punches. Published to massive critical acclaim, this is a lyrical and chilling account of a girl’s descent into the vortex of anorexia. Another must-read by the Carnegie Medal shortlisted author of Chains. Lia and Cassie were best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies. But Cassie starved herself to death. Now Lia means to follow. The voice inside Lia’s head tells her to control herself: stay strong, lose more, weigh less. Thin, thinner, thinnest. Until she disappears…

  • A brutally frank tale of anorexia, bulimia and peer pressure
  • The hugely acclaimed author of Chains at her powerful best
  • Laurie Halse Anderson leapt to fame with the bestseller Speak
  • Her other books include Fever 1793, Twisted, Catalyst and Prom

“This is necessary reading.” Booklist

“A startlingly crisp and pitch-perfect first-person narrative.” School Library Journal

“As difficult as reading this novel can be, it is even more difficult to put down.” Publishers Weekly

This book contains mature themes more suitable for older readers.
