Product description


''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

''This is something utterly new, a book that is kinetic and beautiful and unexpectedly life-affirming.'' -- Chris Lynch, Michael L. Printz Honor-winning author of Freewill

''Any teen who's ever felt like an outsider will be able to relate to Aysel's and Roman's fully realized characters . . . Earnest and heartfelt.'' --Kirkus Reviews

''A stunning and haunting depiction of depression - you really feel Aysel's numbness. I had to take 'emotional recovery' breaks while reading it. My Heart And Other Black Holes handles the sensitive topic of suicide expertly, with absolutely no patronizing or glamorization. And yet, the book leaves you with such a warm feeling of hope. It's a remarkable achievement.'' -- Holly Bourne, author of Soulmates

''Our words can affect people in a way that even we cannot understand…I would recommend all teenagers to read this book as it is very interesting, it grips you from the beginning, it's a quick read, and it is just a wonderful piece of writing.'' --Guardian (London)

''Debut novelist Warga addresses adolescent depression and suicide with honesty and grace in this story of a scientific-minded Turkish American sixteen-year-old who is preparing to end her life…Through an eloquent first-person narrative, Warga crystallizes the significant turning points in Aysel's attitudes and emotions and celebrates the sparks of hope combatting the dark thoughts that threaten to destroy her.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Addresses serious issues with complexity and humor…thoughtfully presented.'' --School Library Journal

''This book proved hard to put down - both characters had my heart aching for them'' --Book Club Forum

About the Author

Jasmine Warga lives in Mariemont, Ohio with her husband, Greg, a cat named Salvador Dali, and a puppy named Scout. She was born and raised just outside of Cincinnati, and spent her days making up stories, listening to emotive music, staring up at the night sky, and reading. She graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in History and Art History, and went on to teach 6th grade science at a school in Houston, Texas. In June 2013, she received a Master's in Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Lesley University. My Heart and Other Black Holes is her first novel.
