Born into a life of drugs and squalor, bright and confident Destiny hopes for a better life than her mother Sally's. But with addiction all around her she faces an uphill struggle, one that at times she is too weak to fight '…I'm toxic, everywhere I go I spread bloody poison, it seeps out of me like some… rotten wound that is crawling with maggots.' In God Flavoured Soup, Lorraine Meikle shows us an unscrupulous underworld of drugs and degradation where, despite the odd success story, the battle for something better often seems too hard to win. Will Destiny win out? Is her course indeed predetermined or can self-will lift her out and give her hope for a better future?
