Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

YA, Contemporary, Eating Disorders (female, anorexia)

This is one of my favorite books, and partially inspired Starvation. 

Premise:

Lia and Cassie are best friends, wintergirls frozen in fragile bodies, competitors in a deadly contest to see who can be the thinnest. But then Cassie suffers the ultimate loss—her life—and Lia is left behind, haunted by her friend's memory, and feeling guilty for not being able to help save her.

In her most powerfully moving novel since Speak, award-winning author, Laurie Halse Anderson explores Lia's struggle, her painful path to recovery, and her desperate attempts to hold on to the most important thing of all—hope.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

YA, Contemporary, grief depression, cancer

This has been consistently a favorite book of mine, especially since the mental health themes are subtle, yet important. The best reviews I've gotten are those that compare Starvation to John Green's works.
