News About Wintergirls By Laurie Halse Anderson

As you all know, I always judge a book by its cover. That being said, the first time I saw the cover of Wintergirls By Laurie Halso Anderson I just HAD to get my hands on it. Well somehow I actually got lucky and its on its way here as I type!

For those of you who are interested in learning more about Wintergirls (coming out March 19, 2009) click on the following links!

Here's a summary of Wintergirls:

“Dead girl walking,” the boys say in the halls.“Tell us your secret,” the girls whisper, one toilet to another.I am that girl.I am the space between my thighs, daylight shining through.I am the bones they want, wired on a porcelain frame.
Lia and Cassie are best friends, wintergirls frozen in matchstick bodies, competitors in a deadly contest to see who can be the skinniest. But what comes after size zero and size double-zero? When Cassie succumbs to the demons within, Lia feels she is being haunted by her friend’s restless spirit.
In her most emotionally wrenching, lyrically written book since the multiple-award-winning Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia’s descent into the powerful vortex of anorexia, and her painful path toward recovery.

Yeah, I was sold just from the cover but after reading the summary I am in serious anticipation of this book's arrival!
