    Hunger
    Author:   Jackie Morse Kessler
    Genres:   Fantasy | Young Adult
    Publisher:   Graphia; Original edition (October 18, 2010)
    Kessler has written an unusual allegory about eating disorders, one that works on several levels. As seventeen-year-old Lisabeth sinks deeper into anorexia, she summons Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, who in turn assigns her a black steed and transforms her into Famine, another of the Four Horsemen. As Lisabeth gallops across the world, she witnesses examples of both gluttony and starvation. Using her newfound power, she combats famine, visits horror upon the privileged, and strives to bring balance to the world, all while ignoring the need for balance in her own life.
