Book Review

This is a cute story with a well-meaning protagonist who has to deal with some unexpected consequences, but it's fun seeing her take action to try to save her family business. It's not a book full of rich symbolism, but it's an enjoyable realistic fiction novel that has you rooting for the main character.
