The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake - Aimee Bender

In Aimee Bender’s second novel, Rose Edelstein discovers, on her ninth birthday, that she can taste emotions in what she eats. She must then navigate a strange world where feelings she does not yet understand shape how she views her family, friends, and countless strangers. The Particular Sadness Of Lemon Cake (Anchor, $15) is a lovely and haunting story; Bender’s characters are endearingly human in the face of abnormal circumstances.
