really liked it
bookshelves: golden-sower-nominee

This was one of the Golden Sower previews I didn't get to read last summer. Obviously, it didn't need my vote because it is now a nominee for the Golden Sower Award. I really, really liked it. The protagonist reminded me of Sara (violin player who hates olives and loves a cute trumpet player.) I loved the themes: Having a gift, having a dream and making choices. Really a great YA book even though I skipped all the recipe parts--pretty much like I skipped all the football parts in your book, Chris.
Favorite quotes: "There are so many other things in life, so many other possibilities to make me happy. And I shouldn't have to settle for just one."
"I liked Sartre's 'No Exit'. There's this line in the play that reminds me of my high school."
"Really? What line would that be?"
"Hell is other people." :)
