Want 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.

I have 5 copies (one for each starred review it's received) to give away of Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. Comment below to win.

First copy goes to the first commenter.

Two copies go to people who're already followers of my blog. (And actually - every once in a while I'll throw in gifts for people who are my followers, and them alone, kinda like an in-club sorta thing. Sound good?)

Two at random.

Comment! Only open to US and Canada, you've got until next Friday to enter, annnnnnnd - GO.

Contest is over. Winners picked here.

I would love a chance to win this book. I have been placed on a book buying ban by the hubby and this one is on my list of "Want to read" books.

the epic rat said...

I like how you have copies to equal the starred review :) Genius!

272 followers though - quite a clubhouse! :P

The cover is pretty amazing, though the clearness of that eye is mildly disconcerting.

Wintergirls!

I'm a freshman in college and just discovered this blog a few weeks ago. Since, then it has illuminated many boring work filled days.

So thank you for writing intelligently, and more importantly thank you for writing with an insightful honesty that makes me want to keep coming back.

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
