Jim Bronson is not your average guy. His above-average penchant for olfactory science, and his below-average capacity to understand other human beings, has left him alone and alienated from his fellow man. And while Jim's mother has always been around, she hasn't been able to guide Jim to happiness. His life is more of a walk in the past than making plans for a hopeful future...except for perhaps the Smellasizer. And yet, just maybe, Marie Bellman (smell profile #374), her mother's sweater, the library, Jim's life-long bully Connor, and the Post Office may be the combination of scents that Jim has needed to find life in a world that has always torn it from him.
This book by David Wilson-Burns is sure to engage your imagination, entertain your senses, tug at your heart strings, and leave you with a tear in your eye and a smile on your face. David is gifted at character-driven stories, and you'll no doubt finish this book a little in love with the very odd, very quirky Jim Bronson.
