I'm intrigued by...
Kids of Appetite by David Arnold
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: 20 September 2016
Amazon | The Book Depository
author of Mosquitoland brings us another batch of unforgettable
characters in this tragicomedy about first love and devastating loss.
Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell.
It begins with the death of Vic’s father.
It ends with the murder of Mad’s uncle.
The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it.
But in order to tell their story, Vic and Mad must focus on all the chapters in between.
This is a story about:
1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.
7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.
8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.
9. A story collector.
10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.
11. Falling in love with a painting.
12. Falling in love with a song.
13. Falling in love. (summary from Goodreads)
I really enjoyed Arnold's first book, Mosquitoland, so I can't wait to read this one. I'd be interested in that summary alone!
