Review: The Sugar Queen By: Sarah Addison Allen

The Sugar QueenThe Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Josey Cirrini has been isolated from the town her deceased father put on the map. She has been caring for her mother, making up for her actions as a child, and hiding away. It comes as a surprise when Della Lee Baker appears in her room and is looking to hide away, in none other than Josey's secret closet (a closet filled with treats and romance novels, secreted away from the world and especially her mother). Reluctantly she agrees and finds a something in Della which leads her to finding out more about herself and gaining some much needed self confidence, she also picks up a friend along the way.
Magic fills the pages as only Ms. Allen can write, creating characters and a storyline that might suspend your disbelief, and have you wrapped and wanting to be embraced into the pages.
There is some twists, a bit of mystery, some romance, and as always hope and magic. This is a sweet (pun and true) novel to lose yourself in, but warning -- you will be dazed afterward, looking for that buzz again.
