Publisher Comments:

Brilliant, unconventional college senior Tracey Sue Pennington has eked out an impoverished, solitary, but highly functional existence in the years since she ran away from her abusive home. When Tracey finds love with a much older man, she's finally forced to face herself and her past. After recovering a horrific, long-suppressed memory, she discovers that much of her present-day life is a carefully constructed delusion. With equal parts genius and psychosis, Tracey copes with the fallout from a brutal, bizarre childhood in a heart-stopping story that explores both the terror and wonder of mental illness. Kimmel elevates the notion of the unreliable narrator to thrilling dimensions, parceling out Tracey's strange, dark story in mesmerizing bits that obscure as much as they reveal, and keep the reader guessing until the end. Iodine is an exciting departure for Kimmel, whose radiant imagination and lush prose are on full display here. This unique portrait of the psychological effects of trauma is tantalizing, shocking, and ultimately hopeful.
