READ ¸ Wintergirls Laurie Halse Anderson à 8 READ Lose Weigh less Thin Thinner ThinnestMaybe she can make herself disappear altogethe. ariel says everyone loves this book and that s probably true these girls today are probably super drawn to this kind of story it s not bad i just already have a favorite teen problem novel about anorexia one that doesn t have the voice of this narrator who was so immersed in her dreamworld she freuently spoke in this forced poetic voice that i found distracting used to be that my whole body was my canvas hot cuts lick my ribs ladder rungs climbing my arms thick milkweed stalks shooting up my thighs when i moved to jenniferland my father made one condition a daughter who forgets how to eat well that was bad but it was just a phase and i was over it but a daughter who opens her own skin bag wanting to let her shell fall to the ground so she can dance that was just sickmy hands read a braille map hewn from bone starting with my hollow breasts threaded with blue vein rivers thick with ice i count my ribs like rosary beads muttering incantations fingers curling under the bony cage they can almost touch what s hiding insidefor me that voice gets old pretty uick and the constant crossouts not pictured it stands out and makes the layout eye catching but not in a positive way to my elderly eyei honestly don t understand anorexia me i have no discipline i lack the amount of self control it takes to not eat the entire pint of ice cream and even with all of the politicalsocial pressure i lack the interestwillpower to stop eating fuzzy baby animals so the rigorous scrutiny of everything that passes the lips of the anorectic the obsessing and calorie memorizing and constant vigilance shit i m in grad school i don t need anything else to think about for reals why can t these girls channel this energy into something awesome like painting or science and bridge building i know it is complicated than all that but it just seems exhausting and trouble than it is worth this put a nice twist on the teenorexia novel the way it takes it a step further and really plays upon the character s perceived culpability in the death of her best friend which is of course a factor in her own illness but is also a whole other potential novel so i liked the layering of two different enmeshed problems i appreciated its ambition but ultimately i prefer my old tried and true book from my junior high be aware fair i want to like her books so much and there are still three i plan to read but so far the two i have read have seemed like books teen

READ ¸ Wintergirls Laurie Halse Anderson à 8 READ Never picked up Now the voice in Lia's head tells her to stay strong Keep control. Who exactly are the Wintergirls They are Lia and Cassie Cassie is a pretty girl who started battling bulimia at a very young age and at the beginning of our story was found dead in a motel room Lia is her former best friend who is still battling anorexia and has to deal with getting weighed weekly by her well meaning step mother and also has the guilt constantly in her mind knowing that Cassie had called her 35 times Right before she died The details of her death have not yet been released but as Lia goes to the wake and funeral she is reminded of her once strong but toxic friendship with Cassie As the story progresses Lia is left to wonder a few things How did Cassie actually die Could she have saved her if she answered the phoneThis was a haunting story that discussed in disturbing detail how it feels to be trapped inside your own mind Lea doesn t really see food as food She sees a scrambled egg as yellow or 71 for the calories it contains Wintergirls provides an in depth look into eating disorders and it does not hold back or sugar coat anything The emotional and physical aspects of both diseases are explored in such an amazing way You see the story unfold and you know that the author is trying to show the horrors of eating disorders but the book never feels preachy The parents concerns even come out in a way where you understand them and not resent them as being simply annoying parents Lia s protests don t make you feel like she is being a typical rebellious teen either We are inside her head hearing the inner monolog and I found this fascinating to read about A complaint that I have seen about this book is the fact that the author never really explains what has caused Lia to be the way that she is For me that wasn t an issue however because I saw her as a person with serious mental issues and honestly sometimes there is no good reason for demons to haunt us If the author went another way and made Lia a character who was abused or mistreated simply to give her a reason to hate her life this story would have been less uniue in my opinionI loved this author s writing style She kind of has a Chuck Palahnuik feel with the repetitions and vivid weird descriptions She used several tools such as the strike out repetitions and numbers which I have seen some people say were distracting but they didn t really bother me As you know from my Shatter Me review these kinds of things can really annoy me if they are overused but I think in this story they were okay used in moderation and never really made me lose focus on the plotFor a story about such a depressing subject the book didn t make me feel very depressed Yes I felt bad for Lia and her everyday struggles but overall I kept hope that she would eventually get recovered It made me think back to high school and remember friendships I had that may have not been the healthiest friendships but they still in some way helped me to be the person I am today This is a book I won t soon forget The absolute only thing I didn t like about this book was contained in the ending It s not really a spoiler but since it s at the end I will put it here view spoiler The ghost parts at the end and the hallucinations were the only thing I didn t like They made everything in a realistic book seem kind of fake and sometimes when Lia was hallucinating it was hard to know right away that that was what was going on This is only a minor issue in the book and may not even bother other people at all hide spoiler Gut Feeling of Straight White Male our story was found dead in a motel room Lia is her

Laurie Halse Anderson à 8 READ

READ ¸ Wintergirls Laurie Halse Anderson à 8 READ Cassie's body was found in a motel room She called Lia 33 times before she died Lia. I didn t care for the writing style all the crossed out words just felt like an unneccessary affectation that slowed down the pace of the book The chapter headings 00100 etc were a distraction that took me several chapters to even realize what the numbers meant The descriptions are uglyI didn t make any connection to Lia and never grew to like her As written her character seemed like a spoiled rich brat who was not even kind enough to pick up the phone to speak to the parents of her dead best friend even when the girl s mother is begging herShe is willing to run off with a young man that she barely knows or likes in order to not have to face the conseuences of what she s done to herself She uses him to get what she wantsneeds without giving him even a tiny bit of honesty until she is forced to do so None of the things she does make me understand her or like her I simply never grew to care whether or not she got well and had this book been successful for me I should have cared Lia makes reference to the fact that she knows she is starving herself so she isn t acting out of unawareness or confusion she simply doesn t care if she s hurting herself or her family or anyone Her attitude toward her parents is heartless and cold although all they try to do throughout the entire book is help her She blames them for her illness and doesn t ever seem to take responsibility for it on herself A uote from the end of the book The tiny elf dancer became a wooden doll whose strings were jerked by people not paying attentionThat seems to say that she still isn t responisible for what she did to herself if they d been paying attention to her instead of trying to get her to be what they wanted or pursuing their careers she wouldn t have gotten sick in her opinion I m sure there are many better books about anorexia This reads like a manual on how to be anorexic For me this one is a don t bother to read itNOTE For anyone who wants to rip into me and tell me that I don t know anything about eating disorders Well you don t know me and you don t know what I do or do not know about eating disorders You don t know what personal experience I might or might not have So I d appreciate it if that s your only intent if you didn t leave a comment telling me what a bad person I am for not liking a fictional story My review of a BOOK is not intended to put down or de value anyone A careful reading of the review would make it clear that I did not care for the way the author chose to portray this character not that I was putting her down for having an eating disorder Let me say that again If Lia was an alcoholic chocoholic shopaholic drug addict sex addict hoarder snowboarder prom ueen cheerleader or any other kind of character I still would NOT have enjoyed the way the story and charcter was presented I hope that s clear This isn t an autobiography or Lia s real life memoirs It s made up a story fiction not true There are characters in many books that for whatever reason are not likeable For me personally Lia is one of them Any further comments that are merely tearing into me about what I do or not know any personal attacks are not productive Name calling and hurling insults isn t adding anything to the discussion If you want to discuss the book I ll gladly do that Thanks

    [E–pub] Wintergirls AUTHOR Laurie Halse Anderson I initially found this book to be absolutely repulsive the narrative was suffused with this sense that something was hideously wrong and the devices that Anderson was using to describe narrator Lia's reality hinted at a disturbing mania As it turns out this is exactly right Lia's sense of self was damaged even before her former best friend Cassie died alone and in pain Their partnership was a deathly one; both girls a
