I read Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson in one sitting. And cried.

Any of the other novelistic treatments of anorexia/bulemia that I've ever read--the latest being Purge, by Sarah Darer Littman--are instruction manuals for imitators and studies in morbid fascination for casual bystanders.

Wintergirls makes you feel it.

Here's a more complete review, since I've been left so speechless.

Wow! I will definitely need to get my hands on this one, then.
