My Selection for Waiting on Wednesday: Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler

Waiting on Wednesday is a terrific meme started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It gives all of us a chance to see what each other are anxiously awaiting to read.

The premise of Hunger, a YA book, sounds so weird and quirky, I'm really looking forward to checking it out. It's about seventeen year-old Lisa who is anorexic. She has been appointed one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse (which is discussed in the book of Revelation in the bible, btw). Can you guess which one? *Hint* She's anorexic so...come on...I'll give a few more minutes for those of you who don't know the name of the four horseman...ready? Okay. Lisa is appointed to be... Famine.

I can't wait to see how the author combines the issue of eating disorders with the spiritual element that the bible prophesies is a real event, yet to come.

Hunger releases October 18th.
