The Summer of Cotton Candy by Debbie Viguié

When Candace's dad tells her she has to get a summer job, the local amusement park seems like a good choice. People are constantly making "Cotton Candy" jokes about her name but, hey, it's better than flipping burgers all day. She develops a crush on a masked man, makes some great new friends, and grows apart from her old best friend. But that's not the end of her problems - someone at work is out to get her fired. In the end, though, she'll learn a lot about herself and what's important to her. This summer may be the most exciting one of her life!

This book was so fun to read. I would love to have a summer job at an amusement park like Candace! The writing and characters were both excellent. I was jealous of Candace's cool mom - I wish my mom had great fashion sense like her! The amusement park setting made for a lot of action and complications. This novel falls into the category of Christian Fiction (is there an abbreviation for that?) but it only mentioned anything faith-related a few times. I probably wouldn't have thought about it if it didn't say "alternative, God-honoring chick lit" on the back. It is definitely other faith friendly, though. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, light read!

4 out of 5 stars
