Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein bites into her mothers homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mothers emotions in the slice. To her horror, she finds that her cheerful mother tastes of despair. Soon, shes privy to the secret knowledge that most families keep hidden: her fathers detachment, her mothers transgression, her brothers increasing retreat from the world. But there are some family secrets that even her cursed taste buds cant discern.
