It’s been two years since Jesse Andrews has graced us with a new book. Two whole years! But after reading Munmun, the forthcoming title from the bestselling author of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, we can honestly say that every ounce of it was definitely worth the wait.
Set in an alternate reality where every person’s physical size is directly proportional to how much munmun, or money, they have, the poorest of the poor are the size of rats, and billionaires are the size of skyscrapers.
Littlepoor siblings Warner and Prayer are destitute—and tiny. There are no schools or hospitals built for people their size, and every day they face mortal dangers like being mauled by cats and their house getting stepped on. Their only hope of survival is to earn munmun and scale up, but how can two littlepoors survive in a world built against them?
Check out this handy guide to size and munmun in Jesse Andrews’s alternate reality!
