All that she can see is a wonderful magical world, filled with emotion (literally). It's easily relatable and heart warmly good and it really made me want cake!
So the author introduces us to Cherry. Cherry has a gift, she can see people's emotions and they are not pretty (literally). Poor Cherry can see everyone's bad emotion, depression, anger, anxiety, sadness, loneliness, the list goes on, but not only can she see them but they look like monsters too!
The icing on the cake (sorry) is that Cherry has her own Meddlum to deal with, having had her fair share of heartbreak from a young age (she looses her best friend, her father's) she has her own loneliness to deal with, a lifelong companion.
At first she hides, she embraces her loneliness, it's just them against the world but with a little bit of encouragement and her baking skills, she starts to embrace her gift, opening up bakery's in different places to help the people who live there, if she can't get rid of her on Meddlum then she is going to help others heal theirs.
That is until she meets Chase, another person, who like her can see emotion but unlike Cherry he can only see happiness which makes him, frustrated, mischevious and cynical. All of which Cherry can see following him about. He definitely does not want to embrace his "gift" that is until he realises he can wind Cherry up!
Now we have 2 rivals, a turf war begins………
