Happy Pub Day to author, Anissa Gray’s, debut novel, The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls.

The story consumed me and I was fully invested in the women’s stories.

A family in turmoil when the eldest, motherly figure sister, Althea, is sent to prison. Leaving her two daughters in the care of her sisters, Lillian and Viola. But Lillian and Viola are struggling with their own demons; and Althea’s daughters, Kim and Baby Vi, are struggling with their new normal.

It was intricately written and you can’t help but feel a connection to these women. You may be left with wanting a bit more, which is why I think this book should be made into a movie. I certainly see it translating well on screen.

What book do you want to see become a movie?

Thank you to the kind folks at Berkley who sent me an advanced reader’s copy of this book!
