About a Book in Four Pictures: Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

Inspired by Kyle Tezak and his Four Icon Challenge, I will be creating four pictures on my own - or I will borrow from the internet - that will tell you about a certain  book.  Like book reviews, this will help you learn more about some books out there but without having to read lengthy analysis of plots/characters/etc.  This feature will help feed your curiosity about a particular story in the briefest - and more visual - way possible. 

This week's featured book is Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson.  I loved this story, even though the tone was a bit too morbid and poignant.  But it was a really great book, no matter if you want to read it for deeper understanding of eating disorders, or just for a good story. 

From the pictures above, you can now understand that a significant event in Lia Overbrook's life happens in a motel, where her best friend Cassie dies, alone.  She called Lia thirty-three times on her cell phone before she died.  Both Lia and Cassie have eating disorders and even had a pact that they would be the skinniest girls ever.  Apart from this sick goal, Lia also cuts herself in order to ignore some things that she struggles to 'un-feel' within herself.  

I know, it's pretty depressing, but once you get to the end, you will agree that it was more than worth it.

  1. This is a pretty neat idea for introducing a book ^.^

  2. Another great idea from my fellow Filipino! Keep it up Nina! :-)

  3. I'm reading this right now and I agree, it is downright morbid, but I do think its quite good. Hopefully the ending will be uplifting since so far its so darn dark! :)

  4. Ugh, nice one to use pictures for. Super morbid read! I have it on my shelf but I'm afraid to get into it!

  5. Ooo I like like! Your so brilliant with reviews!! :D

I just have to tell you, ARGH feeds on awesomeness, so if you can, drop him some awesome here, and I promise to give some awesome back :D

Right now, because of my really busy schedule, I'm cutting back on receiving awards. So until further notice, me and ARGH would not be accepting awards. But thank you for thinking of us, we really appreciate it!
