"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Hunger (Horsemen of the Apocalypse #1)
By Jackie Morse Kessler

Summary (by Goodreads)
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?
Sounds interesting, yes?  I saw a few people with copies from BEA but so far, I haven't heard much buzz in the Blogsphere.  It is scheduled to be released October 18th.  Interesting way to represent Famine, don't you think?

  1. I've heard about this one before - it sounds like a great fresh way to approach the topic of eating disorders.
