Gingerbread

by Helen Oyeyemi

The premise of this book seemed intriguing – a mother and daughter living in England with a secret past tied to a mysterious homeland who have a special gingerbread recipe that may even be magic… Unfortunately, I was not able to make sense of certain parts of the plot, which served to distract me from an otherwise interesting and very well-written book. (I still haven’t figured out why certain people develop double pupils in their eyes, which the book made a point of mentioning but never explaining.) Clearly, there is something in the gingerbread, but I just couldn’t quite make out what it was meant to be.
