Jacqueline Woodson blurb for ART OF STARVING!!

My debut novel THE ART OF STARVING got its first blurb, and it’s a mind-blowing one. The incredible Jacqueline Woodson, winner of the National Book Award & the Coretta Scott King Award & the Newbery Honor Medal AND A BILLION OTHER AWARDS 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.”

I’m a huge admirer of Jackie’s work [for real, go read Another Brooklyn, which was robbed for the National Book Award this year – Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad was wonderful, but Another Brooklyn is on some next level special], and so honored that she liked my book.

Check out THE ART OF STARVING on Goodreads. ALSO, it’s available for pre-order on Amazon!
