Re: RE: Wintergirls--anyone reading it

I assume you'll want to hear how it was or something...

 

It was really good, but it was also tough to get through.  There were some parts that were a little too much for me (depressing, graphic, morbid).  I found myself reading very quickly to get through a few pages in it, but I didn't stop, because overall the story was so interesting and true to life.  Having a friend in school that had dealt with anorexia, this book was especially worthwhile to me.  I felt like I had private access into some of her thoughts while reading it and it gave me a whole new understanding of what she possibly went through.

Re: RE: Wintergirls--anyone reading it

I've read it before. It's a great book but, like the person above me said, It's very real and true to life so it's not something you would want to read if you are looking for a happy adventure. I enjoyed it very much though, it was a good read!
