The Hunger of the Cheeky Sisters:

Ten Tales


 A new collaborative book of short stories written by Laura Madeline Wiseman which includes eleven of Lauren Rinaldi's full color painting images and over fifty illustrations.

"Remember pouring over Go Ask Alice, Crosses or Are you There God, Its Me Margaret? The Hunger of the Cheeky Sisters: Ten Tales is a provocative, raw, poignant, 21st century coming-of-age for adults to read cover-to-cover with a flashlight in their bed at night (or spend a day at the coffee shop with), and for teens to pour over on their Kindle. Rinaldi's cover art keeps your stare--her lush, sensual drawings and paintings throughout ignite as Wiseman's stories remind you of what it is to grow up a female, with her trademark wit and lyricism, each word as important as the whole, as each line drawn in Rinaldi's work. A classic without any true comparisons--Ten TALES is its own unique piece of art inside and out."
