Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler

An anorexic girl gets recruited by Death to be one of his horsemen.

Hunger had a fabulous concept marred by some uneven execution. I was really invested in Lisabeth’s emotional journey, but felt like the story took a weird turn and moved away from that story into something more epic, and it didn’t work for me. It wasn’t that I minded the fantasy elements, more that I didn’t think that story worked as well on an emotional level. That said, I admired the audacity of the concept and was certainly glad I read the book.
