Gingerbread is the first novel by writer Rachel Cohn. This one falls into the young adult category but I would say it is YA/Chic-lit. If you have been reading this blog, I am sure you are thinking I read too many YA books. You may be right, but I really enjoy these books as much as the regular adult fiction/chic-lit. Gingerbread is a story told from the perspective of the main character, Cyd Charisse, a sixteen year old girl who was sent home from boarding school after getting in trouble with her boyfriend Justin and both were expelled by the head mistress. After arriving home in San Fransico Cyd Charisse gets in trouble for shoplifting and is given community service in a nursing home for her punishment by the juvinille courts. While there she makes a best friend, Sugar Pie, one of the residents of the home and then meets a boy, Shrimp, who she has an instant connection with... This is a story of self discovery. The main character goes from a "little hellion" as her dad likes to call her to growing up a little over a summer and realizing she doesn't have it so bad after all. I like the style of writing style of Rachel Cohn. I have read two other books that she was co-writer of and enjoyed those a lot too. What I also like about her book is it was a quick read. It didn't take long to finish and it was worth the read.
