Author: Laurie Halse Anderson
Lia is an anorexic who still believes she must be the skinniest girl in school. Lia overcomes and realizes her problem in a near-death experience in a motel. Lia doesnt die because at the last minute of her emergency, she called 911. I think this is significant part of the book and tells how people can overcome their conditions.
