(12) Marshmallows For Breakfast by Dorothy Koomson

I was so excited to see Dorothy Koomson's new book that I bought it instantly. I read her book My Best Friend's Girl last spring & recommended it for weeks. Here is my review http://charlotteswebofbooks.blogspot.com/2008/03/30-my-best-friends-girl-by-dorothy.html.
While Marshmallows for Breakfast was not as easy for me to get into, once I did, I couldn't put it down. It is just as wonderfully written as her last book & her characters are so vividly real, you just want to reach through the pages & scoop them into your arms.
Kendra Tamale has just moved transferred back to the UK from spending a few years in Austrailia. She has taken an apartment above the garage of a man. She gets the scare of her life when two kids are standing there when she emerges from the shower one Saturday morning.
Kennie finds herself falling deeper & deeper into love. With Jaxson & Summer. The six year old twins of the landlord. And the landlord is pretty hard to resist, too. But they both have their pasts & they both have issues that hold them hostage from love.
Can this makeshift family work through everything to find permanent happiness?

This one sounds kind of good. Might try it.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
