Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler
“Thou art the Black Rider. Go thee out unto the world.”
Lisabeth Lewis has a black steed, a set of scales, and a new job: she’s been appointed Famine. How will an anorexic seventeen-year-old girl from the suburbs fare as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
Traveling the world on her steed gives Lisa freedom from her troubles at home: her constant battle with hunger, and her struggle to hide it from the people who care about her. But being Famine forces her to go places where hunger is a painful part of everyday life, and to face the horrifying effects of her phenomenal power. Can Lisa find a way to harness that power — and the courage to battle her own inner demons?
Ever since I first saw this cover and read the summary a few months back I've been salivating at the mouth. This is mythical creature I've yet to see in YA fiction and can't wait to read it. I've been hearing nothing but good things about this novel. I can't wait much longer which is fortunate since it comes out very soon!
It comes out October 18, 2010.
