Summary
  • A bullied gay teen boy with an eating disorder believes he's developed super powers via starvation
  • Matt's stomach stabs and twists, pleading for a meal, but Matt won't give in. The hunger clears his mind, keeps him sharp-- and the less he eats the more he seems to have the ability to see things he shouldn't be able to see. Maybe even the authority to bend time and space. And Matt needs to be as sharp as possible if he's going to find out just how Tariq and his band of high school bullies drove his sister, Maya, away. But Matt doesn't realize there are many kinds of hunger-- and he isn't in control of all of them
Summary
A gay teen with an eating disorder that he believes gives him supernatural mental clarity decides to infiltrate the life of a bully responsible for driving away his sister, an effort that leads to a greater awareness of body image, self-acceptance and the things he cannot control
