The Truth About Twinkie Pie; Kat Yeh

The Truth About Twinkie PieThe Truth About Twinkie Pie by Kat Yeh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The target reader will have far fewer problems with this than I did: the inconsistencies in the story and the Southern stereotype will probably go unnoticed. How GiGi managed to be so clueless about her background (really? never tried to look for that shade of lipstick before? not buying it) and DiDi for so long just irritated me. It also felt like forced tension between Mace and GiGi, rather than a natural relationship. Still, as I said, middle grade readers will not notice that and will be eager to try those recipes!
