Readers know Jennifer Weiner as many things: a mother, a daughter, a bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an "unlikely feminist enforcer" (The New Yorker). She grew up as an outsider in her picturesque Connecticut hometown ("a weight-loss ad 'before' outtake in an Abercrombie & Fitch photoshoot") and at her Ivy League college, spent her twenties working in newsrooms, and went on to become a novelist, an activist, and a New York Times columnist. 

Now in her first work of nonfiction, no subject is off-limits as Jen tells the stories of her life. From a lonely adolescence to love, marriage, and modern childbirth to hearing her six-year-old daughter's use of the f-wordfatfor the first time, from her mother's late-in-life lesbianism to her estranged father's death, HUNGRY HEART is a stunningly honest, funny, heartbreaking, and ultimately redemptive memoir about hunger and humor, loving and losing, and a woman who searched for her place in the worldand found it as a storyteller. 


Coming september 13!

The first book in a middle-grade trilogy—a laugh-out-loud funny and painstakingly real tale of friendship, furry creatures, and finding the place where you belong. 

"Weiner makes a winning debut with this witty story of outcasts coming together...well-drawn characters, high comedy and an open-ended finale will leave readers eager for the next installment."
Publishers Weekly

"An engaging tale that helps children to understand both bullying and the difficulties faced by people who in some way deviate from the norm... Enchanting right up to the sequel-beckoning end."
