Lia and Cassie helped each other in their desire to be thin. But now Cassie is dead and Lia is still seeing her everywhere. As the numbers on the scale keep dropping, does that mean Lia is winning the battle?

This was not quite what I was expecting. I think perhaps it had been built up too much for me and didn't quite live up to all the hype. However, it was still a very well-written and well thought out story. I'm not sure how I feel about the ending. It seemed a bit off, but I guess I don't really know how one deals with problems such as Lia's. Disturbing, but an important topic.
