Kids of Appetite by David Arnold
(Release Date: September 20, 2016)
Synopsis: The bestselling 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.
Why I’m dying to read this:
Discovering new books is the best part of Waiting on Wednesday, next to chatting with fellow book lovers of course. If it weren’t for Waiting on Wednesday I may never have heard of Kids of Appetite, and then the part of me that is omniscient would be sad that I was potentially missing out on what could be a really special read.
So, thank you to whoever it was that highlighted this book for their WoW, so that I could discover it and then highlight it on my WoW. I am seriously excited for this read. Sometimes I discover a book, but then after a few weeks the initial excitement wears off and I forget about it.
I haven’t forgotten about Kids of Appetite, and every time I look at that cover my excitement level re-ups! I can’t wait.
