She is a peach meaning
Peach by Emma GlassIntroducing a dazzling new literary voice--a wholly original novel as groundbreaking as the works of Eimear McBride and Max Porter.
Something has happened to Peach. Staggering around the town streets in the aftermath of an assault, Peach feels a trickle of blood down her legs, a lingering smell of her anonymous attacker on her skin. It hurts to walk, but she manages to make her way to her home, where she stumbles into another oddly nightmarish reality: Her parents cant seem to comprehend that anything has happened to their daughter.
The next morning, Peach tries to return to the routines of her ordinary life, going to classes, spending time with her boyfriend, Green, trying to find comfort in the thought of her upcoming departure for college. And yet, as Peach struggles through the next few days, she is stalked by the memories of her unacknowledged trauma. Sleeping is hard when she is haunted by the glimpses of that strangers gaping mouth. Working is hard when her assailants rancid smell still fills her nostrils. Eating is impossible when her stomach is swollen tight as a drum. Though she tries to close her eyes to what has happened, Peach at last begins to understand the drastic, gruesome action she must take.
In this astonishing debut, Emma Glass articulates the unspeakable with breathtaking verve. Intensely physical, with rhythmic, visceral prose, Peach marks the arrival of a visionary new voice.

You are a peach...
I knew it was time to start home-schooling my year-old daughter in English when she accused me of speaking French "like a Spanish cow. After living in southern France for four years, my little girl now translated French idioms directly into nonsensical English. She had become more French than American. I began noticing this cultural flip-flop one day when I asked her a simple question, in English. This time it was "I have the banana.
The family of year-old Ella McIvor certainly believe the penalty given to care worker Sophie Peach was too lenient. Peach, 45, who admitted fraud, walked free from Perth Sheriff Court last week, getting away with hours of unpaid work. Crimes including murder, rape, robbery and some terror offences already came within the remit of the Unduly Lenient Sentence Scheme. Crimes which have now been added to it include sexual activity with a child or person with a mental disorder and controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate or family relationship. Dr John Beer, chairman of Action on Elder Abuse , welcomed the new additions to the scheme but said they didn't go far enough. The omission of fraud and theft offences from the scheme will be disappointing to older victims of financial abuse, many of whom are deliberately targeted as a result of their perceived vulnerability.
