4 STARS: I Really Liked It
Most people think The Zone is an amusement park, but Candy Thompson knows it’s really a slave labor camp. What else would you call a summer job that requires a sixteen-year-old girl to set aside her whole social life for the privilege of standing out in the hot sun selling cotton candy? Still, there are perks—particularly the mysterious hunk in the Lone Ranger costume. Behind that mask are the most amazing eyes Candy has ever seen. Who is that masked man? But someone else is just as interested. And romantic competition isn’t the only problem. Besides being hard work, The Zone is eating up major time. How is Candy supposed to stay involved in church? Worse yet, will she lose her best friend, Tamara, who resents how Candy’s job limits their time together? This is NOT the summer Candy hoped for! But as she is about to discover, the summer of cotton candy will be the greatest summer of her life.
Don’t you just love this cover?! It makes me feel happy and summery. The Summer of Cotton Candy by Debbie Viguié is the perfect summer read. It’s about a 16 year old girl forced to take a summer job at The Zone, an amusement park, in order to save up some money. Candy finds herself standing in her cotton candy cart in the summer heat losing precious social time. This isn’t the summer Candy planned, but it may turn out better than expected. A really fun and light read.
