100 Books in 2012: The Sweetest Thing by Mandelski
Book 20: The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski Just like the title, this is a sweet read. Sheridan is great at decorating cakes, working in her grandmother's bakery, but what she really wants is to find her mother who left her when she was young. Through very real and likeable characters, Mandelski makes her debut with this novel. Sheridan struggles to balance her time with her workaholic dad, her cake decorating schedule, schoolwork, her new boyfriend, and the revelation that her best friend has a crush on her. A sweet coming of age story. Thanks for getting this book for me, Jen!
