Praise for Hole in the Middle

“[A] powerful, witty, and funny tale, which integrates a sprinkle of magical realism into the mix.”
—Publishers Weekly

“An empowering, timely feminist read about bodily autonomy and one young woman’s fight to keep control of hers.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Hole in the Middle is poetic and peculiar: a story about discovering yourself in all your strange excesses and missing parts and learning how to show them to the world.” 
—Heidi Heilig, bestselling author of The Girl from Everywhere
“Kendra Fortmeyer’s debut is more heart than holes, creatively brilliant, wacky and wise. An author to watch!”
—Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock, William C. Morris finalist and author of The Smell of Other People’s Houses
Dazzling, one hundred percent believable, and laugh-out-loud funny. Kendra Fortmeyer has an admirably weird brain.”
—Kelly Link, author of the Pulitzer Prize Finalist Get in Trouble
“In this wildly imaginative page turner, Fortmeyer manages to sneak wisdom in with levity, profundity in with hilarity, and believability in with magic. She is a glowing talent to watch and follow.”
—Karim Dimechkie, author of Lifted by the Great Nothing

“Intriguing and innovative . . . The magical realist element allows for a sharp but never preachy take on body image, romance and internet culture . . . With this debut, Fortmeyer establishes herself as a writer to watch.”
—The Irish Times

“I loved it . . . This is a book that teenagers actually need to read.”
—Love YA Like Crazy Podcast

“I was blown away by Kendra’s writing from page one.”
—Reading, Writing and Me blog
