Kids of Appetite by David Arnold

Kids of Appetite by David Arnold

I was super excited to read Kids of Appetite by David Arnold and the premise seemed really interesting, but overall I was disappointed with it. It had a really good story but was just a really slow read. I wasn’t very involved in the story and it took a little while to get used to the switches in perspective from interview to flashbacks of the past few days. This book is about Victor and a group of people he meets who help him out and along the way they become friends. Victor’s dad died of cancer and when his mom’s new boyfriend proposes out of the blue Victor panics and takes his dad’s ashes and runs. He finds a list of places that his Dad wanted to be spread, important places for his parent’s love story, and so Victor decides to go on a journey to spread the ashes there. Throughout this journey Victor has to face that there are some things he will never know about his parents. This book also tells the story of Baz, Zuz, Coco, and Mad who take Victor in and help him complete his list. Overall this story is about self-discovery, Victor learning how to accept himself (his facial paralysis) and the change that is happening in his life. Anyone who liked History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera would also like this heartfelt read.
