Review | Wintergirls

Laurie Halse Anderson will present Wintergirls at TKE on Thursday, March 26, at 7 p.m.

Laurie Halse Anderson (Speak) is NOT afraid to tackle the difficult dark subjects of teens. Wintergirls dives into the dismal world of eating disorders. Lia is anorexic, and to make it worse she is in competition with her bulimic friend. Despite the absolute horrors of this story, I was left with a glimmer of hope. Anderson explores these modern teenage tragedies with genuine empathy and realism. – Margaret Brennan Neville
