Gingerbread by Rachel Cohn is a book that has been called “unforgettable”, “NOT just another teen novel”, and was said to be great because ” Likeable Cyd will seem to like one of your buds.”

        What “Gingerbread” is about is a teenage girl that was at fancy boarding school in New England, but got kicked out, and sent back to her house with her mom, step-dad , Sid, and Nancy in San Francisco. They ALL drive her crazy, but lucky for her she had her little doll named Gingerbread that she’s had since she was a little girl.  Soon, Cyd got to out of control with rebelliousness,  and grounding didn’t even make her stop. So, her mom decided to let Cyd go to New York and meet her real father for the whole summer. This was a dream come true for Cyd!!! It isn’t what Cyd expects of them, and she isn’t what they thought of her either!

        It is really, and truly a great book, the brilliant narrative of the story will keep you reading! It was rewarded “Best Book of the Year selection by Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, Barnes & Noble and
The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books”. It was also said to be the best book since `76!
