“Dead girl walking,” the boys say. “Tell us your secret,” the girls whisper.
A runaway truck crashing into your heart: duck now if you don’t want it to floor you. Lia’s best friend Cassie starved to death. Now Lia wants to follow. Thin, thin, thinner. Until she’s all gone… No one gets where Lia is at. They think she’s sick. She knows she’s strong. Her mum is busy saving other people’s lives. Her dad’s never there. That leaves Lia alone to carry on. Stay strong. Lose more. Weigh less. Be thin. Be better. Weigh less. Be best. Be thinnest of all… A raw, real book that dares to speak out loud about anorexia. The pride and dark pleasure – not just the death and pain.
