This was the strangest book I’ve read in a long time. It took forever to figure out what was going on. I hate anti-climatic endings like this one. I think the author just liked to hear herself think. Boo.

Rose Edelstein has a special gift—or curse—of taste! Aimee Bender’s book about Rose and her family is a bit mind-bending, but worth the journey. Perfect summer reading. I didn’t expect to like this book when reviews of it had descriptions like ’magical realism’ in them. But, for those of us who taste--or wish we could taste--for a living, it’s a sweet story for sure. I almost believed this was happening to real people; its LA setting becomes like home. Wonderful coming of age story, which is always a fave of mine. So, I say, put on your library list!

I found this story fascinating. It made me wonder what if everyone had Rose’s ability? What secrets could they find about me, what could I find out about others. Very well written.
