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 fight her own inner demons?

Not to be mean but I was surprised how much I loved this story. I was asked to review rage and I didn't have access to Hunger so they sent it to me! Thank you very much Adrienne! I was sad how short it was. But I always love a quick read! The details and the connection you felt towards the characters and the author of this book was... for a lack of a better word stunning. The attention to detail was just a breath of fresh air. I completely recommend this book to anyone who isn't squeamish. It is very detailed. And I believe it's for people who have a heart toward self harm and healing old wounds. I can't really say anything else other then the ending is very inspiring.
