Book Review

by Jackie Morse Kessler

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal

RT Rating

Powerful, fast-paced, hilarious, heart-wrenching, vivid, sad and most of all real, Hunger is a breathtaking portrayal of a difficult topic that also deftly ties in with the interesting and scary apocalypse. Though short, this story will grab the reader and never let go.

After almost killing herself, anorexic Lisa is assigned to one of the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse: Famine. As she travels the world witnessing both real starvation and gluttony, she must battle her own inner demons, or else risk her life. (HARCOURT GRAPHIA, Oct., 180 pp., $8.99, ISBN: 9780547341248, PB, 14 & Up)
