Book Review: Shrimp

Shrimp by Rachel Cohn

SUMMARY: If Cyd Charisse knows one thing, it's that Shrimp is her true love. Shrimp, the hottest pint-size surfer-artist in San Francisco. That boy (as her mother called him) was the primary cause of Cyd being grounded to Alcatraz, formerly known as her room. Now it's the start of senior year. Cyd has changed, but maybe Shrimp has changed too--and maybe Cyd and Shrimp will need to get to know each other all over again to figure out if it's for real. Can Cyd get back together with Shrimp and keep the peace with her mom? (adapted from the inside flap)

OPINION: If you haven't read Gingerbread, you must read it because this book is a sequel to it. (I reviewed it on the blog back in December.) Shrimp is a great story, in which Shrimp and CC (her new nickname) struggle to figure out if they have a place in each other's lives anymore. Also, Shrimp's easy-going pot-smoking parents are back on the scene, which creates some very unique tension. The questions about CC and Shrimp's relationship continue to the last page. So, of course, I stayed up late to finish the book and find out what happened! It was definitely worth the time, and I totally recommend it to you. Thanks, Amy, for the suggesting it!
