ABOUT THE BOOK:
*This novel contains coarse language, violence, and sexual themes.
Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she’s rehabilitating herself as a “normal” mother and mathematics teacher, it’s time to stop dreaming about slicing people’s throats.
While being the wife of Melbourne’s leading drug lord and simultaneously dating his best mate is not ideal, she’s determined to make it work.
It does work. Until Mia, her lover’s daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia’s back. It isn’t long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them.
But is protecting the kids really Sonia’s motive?

It’s time for WHACKY WORDS! Remember, this is supposed to be FUN!
Thank you to everybody who played along for the previous word. The real meaning of the word Frottage is – the technique of creating a design by rubbing (as with a pencil) over an object placed underneath the paper. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frot
The definition that caught my imagination was posted by –well, there were two that I really liked. HEATHER GARDNER posted: how high a frog will jump when goosed with an electric current. LOL (Gotta tell you that I’m still stuck with that mental image…poor toad). KRYSTAL JANE posted: to frollick daintily in a vast field of fragrant flowers (preferably tall ones) whilst singing folk songs. “Mandy is in the backyard frottaging and breaking in her new Mary Janes.” I love the light-hearted, alliteration-styled answer! Congratulations Heather and Krystal! I’ll contact you shortly.
Today’s word is
This is that special baby language – the goo-goo-goo gaa-gaa-gaa da-da-da ta-ta-ta language… those first sounds produced by babies who are learning to speak.
That’s my definition. (The word does have a meaning, but you are invited to play along by providing your own original meaning. No cheating and looking up the word. I’ll post the meaning next week). So do you wanna play along? Leave your definition in the comment section below.
