Reviews

"My Heart and Other Black Holes is alive with intensity, gut-wrenching honesty, moments of humor, and--of course--heart. This is an extraordinary debut by a striking new voice in YA fiction that left me in awe and moved beyond measure. Not to be missed."--Nova Ren Suma, author of THE WALLS AROUND US
"With high intelligence and a massiveness of heart, Warga gifts us with a novel that has the music of Mozart, the logic of advanced physics, and the vision to see the link between them. This is something utterly new, a book that is kinetic and beautiful and unexpectedly life-affirming."--Chris Lynch, National Book Award Finalist for Inexcusable and Michael L. Printz Honor-winner for Freewill
Praise for MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES: "[The book] addresses serious issues with complexity and humor . . . thoughtfully presented."--School Library Journal
Praise for MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES: "Earnest and heartfelt . . . any teen who's ever felt like an outsider will be able to relate to Aysel's and Roman's fully realized characters."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES: "Warga delves honestly into the very difficult issues of teenage depression...sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but ultimately filled with hope."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
Praise for MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES: "At times poignant, bitter, and funny, this narrative captures [a] unique voice that questions what it means to die--and to live."--Booklist (starred review)
"A well-executed family drama of the power of romantic and parental love, secrets, regrets, and new beginnings."--Kirkus Reviews
"An intense family drama that will pull readers in with poignancy, romance, and grief over lost relationships, all set to the beat of scattered song lyrics woven nicely through the narrative."--Booklist
"Intriguing, romantic, and honest, the book celebrates the new beginning that can emerge from tragic endings."--Publishers Weekly
"This timely, multicultural novel hits all the right notes in the right ways"--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
Praise for MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES: "Debut author Warga unflinchingly tackles the grim subject matter with empathy, sensitivity, and honesty, without trivializing her protagonists' disturbing thoughts or emotions . . . [with an] utterly endearing romance."--The Horn Book
