Throwback Review: Gingerbread (Cyd Charisse #1) by Rachel Cohn

Untitled

I previously had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the hosting company I used for the blog, and all of my content was deleted.  I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what  I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections.  See some that I have already posted here.

Goodreads Summary:

“I will be as wild as I wanna be.” After getting tossed from her posh boarding school, wild, willful, and coffee addicted Cyd Charisse returns to San Francisco to live with her parents. But there’s no way Cyd can survive in her parents’ pristine house. Lucky for Cyd she’s got Gingerbread, her childhood rag doll and confidante, and her new surfer boyfriend.

When Cyd’s rebelliousness gets out of hand, her parents ship her off to New York City to spend the summer with “Frank real-dad,” her biological father. Trading in her parents for New York City grunge and getting to know her bio-dad and step-sibs is what Cyd has been waiting for her whole life. But summer in the city is not what Cyd expects — and she’s far from the daughter or sister that anyone could have imagined.

My Thoughts:

This was my favorite, favorite, favorite book in high school. I connected with Cyd Charisse so much. I even had my own weird doll (Lilith) that I carried everywhere before I got this book , which I think made me like the story so much more. It isn’t as epic as it was for me 10 years ago, but mostly for nostalgia I still love it.
