Although The Art of Starving won an award for extraordinary science fiction, I perceived the work more as realistic fiction and that the magical elements were hallucinatory or imaginary, but I suppose that was intentionally ambiguous. The audiobook version is well-read and recommended for readers age 14+.

I really liked this book! For me this book clearly showed how Matt's anorexia is directly related to his feeling powerless. Not only does he gain power over a portion of his life but he also gains a few extra powers that most people don't have. Quick read and I loved book format with the rules!
