About the Book


March 2010

Lia's estranged best friend Cassie is found dead in a motel room. What Lia hasn't told anyone is that Cassie called her 33 times the evening she died; Lia didn't answer the phone. She also hasn't mentioned that she and Cassie once made a pact to see who could become the skinniest. At 99 pounds Lia is winning. Haunted by Cassie's ghost, Lia must choose between the exquisite control of anorexia and the sustenance she needs to live.
