"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: sheÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢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?
ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â Traveling the world on her steed gives Lisa freedom from her troubles at homeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â€Âher 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 powerÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â€Âand the courage to fight her own inner demons?
ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â A wildly original approach to the issue of eating disorders, Hunger is about the struggle to find balance in a world of extremes, and uses fantastic tropes to explore a difficult topic that touches the lives of many teens.
