From what I gather, the story deals with an abused young woman who is given a new life in her own personal heaven thanks to a sympathetic witch. As after she has two daughters who reach adolescence, her world is threatened when the borders between it and the real world weaken and allow some ominous characters to enter and threaten everything she holds dear.
That sounds like some potentially good reading. Throw in some talking bears and I'm sold. The novel is supposedly quite lyrical and poetic with the language and is one of the more "mature" young adult novels of the past year. Like many, I've come to enjoy quite a few YA novels in spite of my relatively advanced age. I hope should I get a chance to read Tender Morsels any time soon, I'll have as positive response to it as some of the reviews for it I've read.
