Bitter In The Mouth, Paperback Book

Bitter In The Mouth Paperback



Growing up in Boiling Springs, North Carolina, in the '70s and '80s, Linda Hammerick knows that she is different.

She has strong, almost paralysing associations between words and tastes; she doesn't look like everyone else; and she isn't popular at school.

She finds her way through life with the help of her great uncle 'Baby' Harper, who loves her and loves to dance, and her best friend fat-thin-fat Kelly with whom she has been exchanging letters since they were seven.

But then a tragedy and a revelation will make her question everything she thought she knew about herself and her family.
