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 IMAGINARY GIRLS and 17 & GONE
"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
"[The book] addresses serious issues with complexity and humor . . . thoughtfully presented."--School Library Journal
"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
"Debut novelist Warga addresses adolescent depression and suicide with honesty and grace"--Publishers Weekly
"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
"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)
"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)
