it was ok
Read in September, 2010

From the cover, I expected a breezy coming of age story of a girl I would grow to love. Ugh.

The book began nicely enough about an ugly duckling who had a pet duck, a pet duck which her mom made as a surprise dinner one day. Candace worked in her family's restaurants mainly as the "egg roll girl". It was a coming of age story filled with all kinds of stomach clenching scenes.

I rushed through the story not really enjoying the journey. If it were much longer, it could have really depressed me. But I did get through the book so it must have grabbed my attention enough.
