The Frosting and Sprinkles: These books are my new obsession (just wait until I review the next one, which is my favorite!). Seriously, I love, love, love these books.
The characters are phenomenal. Good or bad, you cannot help but love them all and empathize with them in some way. Gen, the protagonist, is particularly lovable and hilarious with his sarcastic wit and talent to be conniving yet admirable.
Turner has an above-bar talent for writing! This book won a Newberry Honor Award, so I think others would agree. There are so many twists and turns in the story that you do not see coming. She has a talent for writing exactly what she means, while making you think something entirely different. It's great. I love surprises!
This book is full of adventure and mystery and also portrays honor, bravery and character.
The Piece of Hair That Fell Into the Batter: The beginning is SLIGHTLY slow-moving, BUT keep going because the rest of the book is amazing-as well as the rest of the series.
