Thoughts: I knew it was going to be tough book to read because of the subject, but I really wanted to read it because I'd heard it was great. Not only is it powerful, I thought it was completely sad. I really was heartbroken with every page I turned because of how the disorder affected Lia.
I know that Lia was going through some tough times, but I really wanted to just shake her and make her realize, really see what she was doing to herself. I was really hurting for her, and I loved that Anderson created such a real and raw character that I felt I knew.
I'd only read one other book by Anderson, Speak, and I liked it but it didn't really interest me too much. This one was really different for me. Although both are about tough issues, I really felt like I connected with this one even though I've never been in or known any one to be in this sort of situation.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone, it is a really tough and great book to read.
Favorite Line: "I wish I had cancer.
I will burn in hell for that, but it's true."
