Wintergirls - Laurie Halse Anderson

This was definitely one of the most disturbing books I’ve read to date…if not the most disturbing. For years now, ever since high school, I have had a fascination with mental illness and have even written a paper or two on the subject of eating disorders…but despite the research I’ve done and the Lifetime type movies I’ve seen over the years I guess I never fully grasped what exactly Anorexia or Bulimia could do to a person. Reading this was a haunting experience, and the type of book that as you are reading it all you want to do is stop reading it but at the same time you feel absolutely compelled to keep reading.
