She wants to find a cool job, the city's best caffeination and most perfect cupcake, and a hot new love. But the reality of CC's new life hits some unexpected obstacles, including a broken leg that renders her immobile; the joy and a...more
After breaking up with Shrimp and letting him `escape' to New Zealand with his parents, CC moves from San Francisco to New York to start a new exciting life on her own.
Except that right away things go wrong (she falls down the stairs and breaks her leg, leaving her stuck in her brother's apartment - no elevator - until her it is healed).
Her brother has better things to do than to listen to her whining...more

C.C. aggravates the hell out of me a lot of the time, being all rich-girl angsty and so on, but she ends up scootching toward “responsible” with each book without turning all goody two shoes. Plus, who wouldn’t eventually love an avowed bad girl in miniskirts and combat boots who also carries a rag doll (Gingerbread) around in a metal lunchbox and makes friends with...more

I had high expectations for this book, the third Rachel Cohn has written about Cyd Charisse (the first two are GINGERBREAD and SHRIMP). The previous adventures of Cyd Charisse were absolutely brilliant. This book didn't quite live up to those expectations, but perhaps they were unreasonably high. But this was still a fabulous book!

I read a lot of books. I read a lot of YA. But this book had so many name-drops and allusions to pop culture and such that I, at one point, read four different things i didn't get to my husband, who Googled them for me. There are books for people who read classical books that have allusions to such, there are books that have no allusions except their own, and there are...more

I hated the ending to Shrimp because just like every other romance, you want the characters to end up together. But between Cupcake and Shrimp, you learn a lot about who Shrimp and Cyd are separately. We learn things about Shrimp as Cyd learns them.
Cupcake felt very real, like the story could very we...more

I'll always root for True Love, just like CC. Sometimes I need a quick, flirtatious novel to read in place of the heavier things I favour nowadays, and I love this trilogy. Though the...more
