In the world of Sheridian Wells, life is perfect when she is decorating a cake. Unfortunately, everything else is a complete mess: her mom ran off years ago, her dad is more interested in his restaurant, and the idea of a boyfriend is laughable.Finally, I finished this book! Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad book. I do have some complaints, though. Sheridian constantly used the dialect "I am" and other similar vocabulary. I haven't met a teenager yet who speaks like that.
But Sheridian is convinced finding her mom will solve all her problems--only her dad's about to get a cooking show in New York, which means her dream of a perfect family will be dashed.
Using just the right amount of romance, family drama, and cute boys, The Sweetest Thing, will entice fans with its perfect mixture of girl-friendly ingredients.
Other than that, this was a good book. Slow at parts, and Sheridian's mom really infuriated me. Personally, I love my mom, and I would hate to have a mom like Sheridian's. It would break my heart.
The father annoyed me. Even when he "changed," I still found him annoying. And the whole thing with New York, I did find him selfish. Maybe I just did not see the hidden meaning behind The Sweetest Thing. That's about it, you should read it.
