I didn't look into the author too much before reading—I just checked to make sure if she was Asian because ain't no way I'm reading a story about an Asian tiger mom on bath salts and her half-asian daughter written by some white chick from North Dakota (more on this later). The story is told from the viewpoint of Lily, 18, who has been offered a place at Oxford and just wants to survive the summer at home. A masterful exploration of mothers and daughters, inherited trauma and the race to break its devastating cycle, Bad Fruit will leave readers breathlessly questioning their own notions of femininity, race and redemption.Ella takes time to let you as a reader learn what the family dynamic is like and form your own questions on what has made the characters the way they are. She brought such presence (and by presence, I mean staring a cobra directly in the face kinda presence).

This is such a well done character-driven suspense with some dark themes that will keep you guessing until the end. Beautiful and shocking, Bad Fruit is as compulsive as it is thought-provoking, as nuanced as it is explosive.

Until then, she must continue to single-handedly manage her mother’s erratic moods since her father and siblings are incapable of doing so.

Bad Fruit heralds a seriously impressive new talent in Ella King CHRIS WHITAKERMasterful in its evocation of the complexity of mother-daughter relationships .The pace is pitched extremely well and I genuinely couldn’t put it down as this is a psychological thriller that has you in its grip throughout.
