An Okay Book

by nicknamesarelame on Jan 4, 2008

?Girl, you look like trouble.? That girl is Cyd Charisse, the protagonist of Rachel Cohn?s book Gingerbread, the first novel of a two-book series. Cyd?s biological father, or as she calls him ?Frank-real-dad,? lives in New York with his two children. Cyd barely rmembers him; she's only even met him once. ow she is faced with many problems and her boyfriend, her friend Sugar Pie, and Gingerbread are all she?s got. When Cyd?s mom finally has enough of her antics, she sends Cyd to New York to spend three weeks with Frank-real-dad. While there, she finally discovers the truth about her father, her family, and love. The question is, does she like it? Rachel Cohn did an outstanding job creating the characters in this book. I felt that I was experiencing every scene as though I was right there with them. The characters were very realistic because the transitions that they made throughout the book were believable. I loved Gingerbread because while I was reading it, I felt like I knew Cyd and her family not as a reader, but as a friend. The characters emotions were written in an animated and realistic style. The result is a kinetic energy that keeps the pages turning. While I was reading Gingerbread I felt happy, sad, outraged, humbled, and even overjoyed at times. Any book that can make you feel all those things qualifies as a classic. Gingerbread is a great read for any teen girl looking for a unique teen read.
