Audiobook Review: Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
We watch her as she visits websites and blogs for girls just like her, who need motivation to "stay strong". It's absolutely crazy the way this girl thinks, and I absolutely love it. It's raw. It's real, and it's amazing."I eat ten raisins (16) and five almonds (35) and a green-bellied pear (121) (=172)"
It's poetic beauty even reminds me a bit of Fight Club... the movie, (haven't read the book) particularly during this part:
"Dead girl walking," the boys say in the halls.Yes, the book was absolutely amazing. I loved every bit of it, and plan to read more of Laurie Halse Anderson's works as well. :)
"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 library aide who hides in Fantasy.
I am the circus freak encased in beeswax.
I am the bones they want, wired on a porcelain frame.
