"For one moment we are not failed tests and broken condoms and cheating on essays; we are crayons and lunch boxes and swinging so high our sneakers punch holes in the clouds. For one breath everything feels better. Then it melts."
--"Wintergirls" by Laurie Halse Anderson
Lia wakes up on Monday morning to find that her best friend, Cassie, is dead. She died alone in a cold, dark hotel room. All that is left for Lia is thirty-three missed calls from Cassie, a family torn by divorce, and the hope of losing just a few more pounds.
