A good book to listen to and read
I just wish the sequels "Shrimp" and "Cupcake" were on here. They're all equally good.
This book is great, the voice on the audiobook...not so much, it kind of gives a false impression of CydCharisse's character but it is still a damn good book. Weather you are 12 or 19 you will want to be Cyd's best friend. This novel is totally worth listening to/reading. But if you don't mind actually reading it, I would totally read the book. The characters are great and really easy to fall in love with.
I've been a fan of this book since it came out years ago. I was very excited to see while browsing that iTunes offered this book, but it's a disappointment. The voice is really wrong for Cyd Charisse, and it's very slow. I would recommend the paperback of this, not the digital version.
