So last night my Mom told me I had a parcel waiting to be picked up and I got so excited because I know which book it was! I entered a giveaway on Goodreads and won 'The Appetites of Girls' by Pamela Moses. This book sounds so interesting and unique, I can't wait to read this one and let you guys know how it is!
Self-doubting Ruth is coddled by her immigrant mother, who uses food to soothe and control. Defiant Francesca believes her heavy frame shames her Park Avenue society mother and, to provoke her, consumes everything in sight. Lonely Opal longs to be included in her glamorous mother’s dinner dates—until a disturbing encounter forever changes her desires. Finally, Setsu, a promising violinist, staves off conflict with her jealous brother by allowing him to take the choicest morsels from her plate—and from her future. College brings the four young women together as suitemates, where their stories and appetites collide. Here they make a pact to maintain their friendships into adulthood, but each must first find strength and her own way in the world.
