If you’re tempted by an eating disorder, listen to this: "Hungry? I bet you are, you piece of shit. Aw, poor baby hates her body? Good. You should, because you're a big, giant fatso. You lost 10 pounds in a week? Don’t you dare feel proud, you worthless pile. You’re disgusting."

This is the sound of your head when you have an eating disorder. Fun, right? (And so effective!) But since this kind of thing can actually kill you, we don’t recommend it. Instead, scare yourself straight by delving into the novel Wintergirls. Scribed by Laurie Halse Anderson, the award-winning author of Speak, the jarring tale follows two tragic girls through their journey of desperate weight loss. Read about the best friends as they compete for thinness while one takes on anorexia and the other tries out bulimia.
