    "On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents' attentions, bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the cake. But her gift is no blessing, for her mother - her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother - tastes of despair and desperation. Suddenly, and for the rest of her life, food becomes a peril and a threat to Rose."--Back cover.

intriguing story

by DonSchwartz on Aug 5, 2010

Aimee Bender's new novel seizes and holds the reader's interest from the very first chapter. Marked by the writer's characteristic use of magical realism, it also tells the story of a family with a variety of human problems beyond the magical theme suggested by its title. More
