Review | Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo

Review | Love and Other Peri..

Review: I wanted to be emotionally knocked-over by this story. Amelia is 15 and works in a local grocery store. She is disillusioned by her parent’s marriage, or maybe she is disillusioned by her mother’s seemingly constant state of unhappiness with her lot in life as a mother and wife and working woman.
