Weird. That’s one great word for this book. It’s a love story, of sorts, about a girl in Mexico who falls in love with a local boy but is unable to marry him because her mother forbids it. Instead, her younger sister gets the guy and the older girl pours all her sorrow into cooking. It just gets weirder and weirder after that, involving the older sister breast feeding her nephew, and climaxes with a sex scene unlike any I’ve every read. Very interesting, but takes a bit of brain power to read.
