Review: The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
This is a fun read. There are lots of little bits of magical realism that feel very cute and quirky--for example, books follow Chloe around, and it is very clear that there might be something magical going on where Della Lee is concerned. Although there are some sad moments, this one still has a very safe, cosy feel about it as we watch Josey grow and evolve, changing from an adult with the mindset of a young teenager, to a woman who can stand on her own two feet. The writing is very light and I was able to read it in just a couple of sittings. I enjoyed the early winter setting in the small mountain town.
