Louder Than Hunger


Grades 6-8


In 1996, thirteen-year-old Jake, who loves skating, volunteering at a nursing home, and listening to Broadway tunes, is relentlessly bullied in school, which triggers an eating disorder. Withholding food from his body feels like the one thing he has control over. When his anorexia turns dangerous, he reluctantly enters a treatment program and his initial resistance slowly transforms into an exploration of his relationship with food and trusting others.
