Whether it’s having no fingerprints at all (adermatoglyphia), hearing music every time you taste chocolate (synesthesia), or being able to see one hundred million colors (tetrachromacy), some conditions bring our understanding of the human body to another level entirely.

An unparalleled tour of the hows and whys of these extraordinary human conditions, Tastes Like Music is accessible and playful. Each section presents an awe-inspiring snapshot of the biology behind one of 17 quirks, while short interviews with people affected by these conditions (including the author!) provide windows into real-life experiences. The book takes a balanced approach, highlighting the pros and cons of each condition and providing plenty of general facts about the human body. Readers will delight in the illustrations throughout and come away with a new appreciation for all the weird and wonderful things the human brain and body can do.Grade: 6Fountas & Pinnel: XLexile Measure: 1010LCommon Core State Standards:CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.6-8.1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.6.1,1a,1b,1c,1d,2,3,4,5,6
