Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson

Ultraviolet - R.J. Anderson

Read by Tiffany:  Alison has synaesthesia - she sees and tastes sounds, each letter has colour, taste and personality and her mother made it clear when she was very young that nobody must EVER know. A researcher arrives at the hospital who is supportive and understanding (and sounds like chocolate).

The first 3/4 of this book is a fantastic story of a girl's battle with her memories, her perceptions, and the world's expectations of her... and then the story veers into an unexpected reveal which I found very disappointing.
