An interesting item in this book: "what would you do if you could realy taste food? if you could feel the cook's feelings, the farmer's feelings and so on?"
No doubt. It's a special gift.
It's a story about a girl with a special gift (and her brother with... - no spoilers here) and the way she handles it during her teenage time. It's sure not easy. No one can keep secrets from her and there are things she surely dont want to know. But nevertheless, she's got a great gift, if she could use it in good ways.
Personally, something was missing in the book for me and I cant realy put my finger on it. It was good, but not great. It is written lightly but yet, something is not quite right.

Diane I've got this on my nightstand, Doron. I expect to start it soon. Let's compare notes.

Diane Thanks for the honest review, Doron. I've been wasting time on too many disappointing books lately. I think I'll put this one off for awhile.
