The Stone Girl by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

A high school girl is overcome by anorexia.

I liked the writing in The Stone Girl, but I’m not sure it offered anything new to this particular subgenre of troubled teen lit. I was caught up in Sethie’s story, in her desire for a guy who we know isn’t a good one, and her descent into anorexia, but I’m a sucker for that kind of thing even if it’s not particularly original.

Many thanks to Random House Children’s Books for the review copy.
