Audible Editor Reviews

Author Cornelia Strube began her literary career writing plays for radio. It’s no wonder her novel, Lemon, performed by Angela Gothos in an appropriate and satisfying tone of mystification and derision, makes a natural audiobook.

Lemon is a teenage girl in the mold of Holden Caulfield: idealistic to the point of despair, awash in a world of solipsistic adults, outside the shenanigans of her idiot classmates, and possessed of an idiosyncratically gutter eloquence. Add to this a very 21st-century host of problems, from vicious school stabbings to deadbeat dads with difficult lovers and you have the morass from which Lemon must rise or sink. On one hand, Lemon is a classic high school archetype; on the other, she’s a totally unique striver well worth hearing.

Publisher's Summary

Long listed for the 2010 Scotiabank Giller Prize, Lemon is the story of a teenaged girl with the numbers against her: Three mothers, one deadbeat dad, one cancer-riddled protégé, two friends, one tree-hugging stepbrother, and a 60 percent average. The adults in her life are all mired in self-centeredness and the other kids are busy getting high, and she just can't be bothered to fit in.
