What I Am Reading Now: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender

Posted on

From Amazon.com:

On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein bites into her mother’s homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother’s emotions in the slice.

To her horror, she finds that her cheerful mother tastes of despair. Soon, she’s privy to the secret knowledge that most families keep hidden: her father’s detachment, her mother’s transgression, her brother’s increasing retreat from the world.

But there are some family secrets that even her cursed taste buds can’t discern.

    Waiting with bated breath for your review! We read this recently for our book club and had a great discussion. A very interesting read!
