This Impossible Light

If Lily Myers’s name isn’t already familiar as the voice behind the viral slam poem “Shrinking Women,” look it up. This is her first foray into YA fiction, and it’s a story about a girl struggling with an eating disorder, as well as the pressures put upon her by her mother. Myers is phenomenally talented and passionate about body acceptance, especially for teens, and her novel has been compared to Laurie Halse Anderson and Ellen Hopkins — two mainstays in contemporary YA lit.

It’s hard to ignore how powerful the cover alone is, either.
