About this deal

When her behaviours start to trigger Lily into having flashbacks, generations of abuse are uncovered. While green grapes provide good nutrition, red grapes and darkly colored grapes are the highest in antioxidants due to the anthocyanins which give them their bold pigments. As one of the heaviest fruits out there, this mouthwatering summertime staple offers many must-have nutrients. I don���t think I have read any fiction carrying a dysfunctional family theme with this bunch of mental health issues before.

I didn't enjoy this tale of a mother/daughter toxic relationship as much as I'd hoped to, perhaps because I stupidly read it back to back with another book that involved parental abuse, it was a bit of a trauma overload. Debut author King skillfully brings to light the layered, deeply complex machinations that lurk below the surface in families and confer the fragile impression of normalcy; this family's crosshairs of obligation, love, and resentment, too, are never oversimplified. Bad Fruit cuts away the skin of a family as if a daughter could be a knife slicing through lies, pain, and fear. In addition, you'll glean an impressive amount of polyphenols, natural compounds found in produce, tea and chocolate that favorably influence health by improving blood pressure, inflammation, cardiovascular health and insulin resistance, per a 2022 review in the Journal of Food Biochemistry.

Mama’s gets increasingly demented when she suspects her husband of having having an affair with his daughter in law, Francine, Jacob’s estranged wife.

Loved it, am going to go read something fluffy for a little bit, and oh my god I just noticed this is a debut. From preparing her mother’s favourite Singaporean meals to altering her appearance to look more like her, Lily will do just about anything to avoid her mother’s wrath.Many thanks to Netgalley and Astra Publishing House for the much appreciated arc which I reviewed voluntarily and honestly. She doesn't try to understand her mother's behaviour, just survive it, but when she starts having flashbacks about her mother's past, she is forced to peel back layers of generational abuse. And despite her being pretty vile almost all of the time, it is a testament to the author's skill, that by the end of the book, I did have some sympathy for her. Beautiful and shocking, BAD FRUIT is as compulsive as it is thought-provoking, as nuanced as it is explosive.
