Author Victoria Ying Discusses “Hungry Ghost”

Victoria Ying will discuss her latest work, “Hungry Ghost,”a beautiful and heart-wrenching young adult graphic novel that explores themes of eating disorders, family dynamics, and a journey to self-love at an exciting event for all book lovers and graphic novel enthusiasts on Wednesday, April 26 at 6:00 p.m., 

The event promises to be an exciting and informative evening, providing a rare opportunity to hear directly from the author about her work. Fans of graphic novels, young adult fiction, and those who are passionate about mental health will not want to miss this event. The event is free to attend, and Vroman’s Bookstore is the proud sponsor of this event.

Valerie Chu is the protagonist of “Hungry Ghost.” She is quiet, studious, and above all, thin. No one, not even her best friend Jordan, knows that she has been struggling with bingeing and purging for years. But when tragedy strikes, Val is forced to take a hard look at her priorities, choices, and her own body. She sets out on a path to happiness, away from her hometown and her mother’s toxic projections, but first, she must find the strength to seek help.
