The Art of Starving

My debut novel, The Art of Starving, will be published by HarperCollins.  Rooted in my own experience as an eating disorder survivor, it’s Young Adult/Science Fiction/dark and edgy. Think: gay boy Carrie.  The incredible Jacqueline Woodson said: “Beautifully rendered.  This novel will break your heart and heal it again. I found myself leaning forward as I read it, barely aware of myself turning pages.  So excited for Sam’s voice in the world.”

Book Riot said: “Funny, haunting, beautiful, relentless, and powerful, The Art of Starving is a classic in the making, and Matt’s journey will resonate with many, teens and adults alike, for years to come. Buy it, because maybe you were lost and lonely once, and then maybe buy one for someone lost and lonely, too.”

Here’s the book on Goodreads. 

And it’s available for pre-order on Amazon!

Publishers Weekly ran this story on Tuesday, July 21st, 2015:

“Kristen Pettit of HarperCollins has bought THE ART OF STARVING by Sam J. Miller; it’s a novel about a gay, bullied, small-town boy with an eating disorder who believes that starving himself awakens a latent ability to read minds, predict behavior, and control the fabric of time and space. Publication is planned for spring 2017; Seth Fishman at the Gernert Company brokered the deal for North American rights.”
