Kids of Appetite - David Arnold

Staff Pick

When Vic Bennucci arrives in Hackensack, New Jersey with little more than an urn filled with his father’s ashes, his prospects are not very bright. But then he meets Mad, a scarred girl with her own secrets, who initiates him into a group of semi-homeless young people with traumatic histories. As the Kids of Appetite (Viking, $18.99) help their newest member carry out his father’s wishes regarding the scattering of his ashes, Vic falls hard for Mad— and another of their number is falsely accused of murder. David Arnold’s latest novel is a gripping look at what happens when innocent young people fall through the cracks of society. Ages 14 and up.
