I found two words in Stir by Jessica Fechtor.
1. drupelet – “I studied the drupelets neatly stacked, their hollows pursed like lips into supple Os.”
A drupelet is a small drupe or, rather, one of the individual parts of an aggregate fruit (such as a raspberry).
2. pawl – “I liked the sound it made as the pawl clicked through the gear.”
A pawl is a mechanical component in a ratchet.
