Read in January, 2011

This was on the cooking list of Popular Paperbacks for teens. Since I love "food fiction" and it was on the shelf at my library, I checked it out. My definition of food fiction means it must contain recipes featured in the story, so by that standard this is not food fiction, but food is important to the plot. If what you want is a ridiculous and fairly predictable teen romp, this will do. The writing isn't great and there aren't any great surprises, but sometimes that's okay. I found main character Lanie to be a bit hard to take, and she seemed to have an awful lot of freedom, though we do know that her single mom works 10+ hour days. A harmless light read. Some adults may be bored.
