Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
In honor of Laurie Halse Anderson's release of her new book, The Impossible Knife of Memory, I would like to post the book trailer for one of her other books--Wintergirls.
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.
Lia struggles to hide her depression, the cuts on her thighs, and her quickly decreasing weight. Will Lia continue lies, the cutting, the weight loss or will she end up like Cassie—cold, dead, and alone?
