First Review for ART OF STARVING
Book Riot ran this incredible review of ART OF STARVING, the very first one to come out. And I love it so much.
HERE IS MY FAVORITE PART! Emphasis mine.
“Shirley Jackson Award winner Sam J. Miller’s YA contemporary debut novel is unlike anything I have ever read before, and combines magical realism, dark humor, evocative imagery and prose, and a deep, huge heart to tell a story of loneliness, addiction, body image, first loves, coming out, and self-acceptance. 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. It’s not out until early July, but I wanted to put this on your radars now; I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be big. Verdict: Buy it because maybe you were lost and lonely once, and then maybe buy one for someone lost and lonely, too.”
