Book Review: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

The Particular Sadness of Lemon CakeThe Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a delightful, delicious little book. It’s so much more than I expected.

Don’t be deceived by the cute little premise about a girl who can taste the feelings of people through the food they make. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake touches on some pretty deep coming of age themes that everyone experiences in some way or another – whether or not we have super powers. There is loss, disappointment, anger, fear and joy all tossed together here. I’ll be seeking out more of Aimee Bender in the future.
