Read Infandous– groundhogwalking.co.uk

Infandous Sephora Golding lives in the shadow of her unbelievably beautiful mother Even though they scrape by in the seedier part of Venice Beach, she s always felt lucky As a child, she imagined she was a minor but beloved character in her mother s fairy tale But now, at sixteen, the fairy tale is less Disney and Grimm And she wants the story to be her own Then she meets Felix, and the fairy tale takes a turn she never imagined Sometimes, a story is just a way to hide the unspeakable in plain sight.

  5. 3.5 stars INFANDOUS is frustrating to me because it is almost a great book It has a terrific narrator, Sephora Golding, who is unaware of just how unreliable she is She s preoccupied with fairytales and myths, stories of women and sexuality and the terrible things that can happen She s preoccupied with her mother s sexuality She claims to be totally cool with her mom being gorgeous and desired and dating, but she s uncomfortable with her mom s newest beau, who is only twenty five and closer 3.5 stars INFANDOUS is frustrating to me because it is almost a great book It has a terrific narrator, Sephora Golding, who is unaware of just how unreliable she is She s preoccupied with fairytales and myths, stories of women and sexuality and the terribl...
