Gingerbread (Cyd Charisse #1), by Rachel Cohn
Favorite things: Rachel Cohn's spirited writing style and her courage to incorporate a controversial topic, the shifting family dynamics that Cyd helps inspire with her personal growth, the loud cover art, the gritty characters, the element of realism and one of the coolest dolls ever: Gingerbread.
Criticisms: the language wasn't what I would consider YA and some of the subject matter wasn't either, but since I'm adult, it didn't bother me.
Overall: 5 out 5 stars! I bought the next one in this series already. :)
