Funnily enough I realised afterwards I have picked up another of hers from the library but will read a few marsmhallows by different authors before I get into that one. I’m definitely doing this!
The main problem I had was the plot was so slow moving. The Street Where You Live. It made me chuckle that she thought the summer holidays were her holidays! View all 4 comments. I took up various temping jobs and eventually got my big break writing, editing and subbing for various women’s magazines and national papers. Preview — Marshmallows for Breakfast by Dorothy Koomson. Be prepared to laugh, shed a few tears and beeakfast angry at the characters.
She has the shock of her life when marshmllows wakes up on the first morning to see Summer and Jaxon, six year old twins standing in her flat. The characters were very well developed and written. I also loved the name, Tegan, or Tiga pronounced TEEgaas she is nicknamed, so much, that I decided that when I have a daughter, that will be her name.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A sua vida nem sempre tem sido repleta de alegrias e ela tem um segredo que insiste em esconder de toda a gente e a que atormenta todos os dias da sua vida I have no problem with books where very little happens but you can enjoy the main character’s voice. I loved the twins. This is chick-lit, but with hard issues that add amazing depth to this book. Good story concept, but bad characters.
I know more than one rape victim who reacted somewhat similarly – even confronted with the rapist in a social setting several years later. Sadly ofr too credible, but one copes as one can.
Review: Marshmallows For Breakfast by Dorothy Koomson
By the end of the story, I believe you can understand why someone might withdraw themselves from social settings and want to just avoid everything and everyone altogether and why when they are perfectly decent looking they are filled with disgust when they look at themselves in the mirror.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. The author’s skill at drawing the details of the characters in such a way that we could visualize and experience them had me hooked.
I did like it but – me and my buts!!! She rents a room and, before she realises quite how it happens, she is drawn into the lives of Kyle, her landlord, and his twin children, Summer and Jaxon.
To make a long review short, the story was written so beautifully, I didn’t want the story to end.
We’ll publish them on dorotht site once we’ve reviewed them. Item s unavailable for purchase. When Kendra Tamale returns to England from Australia she rents a room from Kyle, a divorced father of two, and begins a new job. When a chance to leave England arose, she leapt at the chance, and off to Australia she went.
And I won’t be able to give anyone a real koosmon until that’s over. It was incredibly kopmson – selling nearly 90, copies within its first few weeks on sale.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. I suppose denial is one of the big themes in this story, and I appreciated how the author dealt with it. I guess I can “make my own ending” by imagining what happened then after the last words, but still it’s only in my mind, which makes me think it isn’t entirely truth.
