“You’re not dead, but you’re not alive. You’re a wintergirl….”
The plot in this story is this girl name Lia has a best friend or used to be best friend that has died. Well Lia has some of her own problems that her parents and step-parents don’t need. She is basically going through a regular teenage life with just some different problems.
This book is based on senior, high school, teenage girl life. The struggles that they deal with on the daily bases do to their weight and looks and things like that. This book is real, it makes you look at life different and not judge people for some of the things that they do. They could just have problems.
Jennifer(step-mother)- Direct Characterization. Lia is telling us about what her step mom is saying and what she does.
Dr. Marrigan (her mother)- She kind of has both indirect and direct characterization. Lia talks about what she says and we know how she feels, but she also isn’t in good connections with her mother and we don’t know completely how she feels about everything.
In this book I liked how the author taught me that I shouldn’t judge someone before I even know the person.
Anyone who is unhappy with their looks or feels that they aren’t the right weight. Or anybody who feels that they have the right to pick on people because of the way they look. I advise you to read this book and realize that it’s not right to make fun of anyone. And if you are unhappy just try to change the way you think about yourself. Think about what is on the inside of you. Like your heart for example and not just if you are pretty enough, or if you meet a certain persons standards. Because that person isn’t always going to be around to judge you. Read this book and realize that life is more than just what you look like or how much you weigh. It’s how you live life and if you make a difference.
