I'm thrilled to spotlight Sarah Ockler's latest YA novel, BITTERSWEET. Cupcakes and hockey players? How's that for a winning combination? I really cannot wait to read this one. A copy is on its way to me as I type!!
Here's the description from Goodreads:
"Once upon a time, Hudson knew exactly what her future looked like. Then a betrayal changed her life, and knocked her dreams to the ground. Now she’s a girl who doesn’t believe in second chances… a girl who stays under the radar by baking cupcakes at her mom’s diner and obsessing over what might have been.
So when things start looking up and she has another shot at her dreams, Hudson is equal parts hopeful and terrified. Of course, this is also the moment a cute, sweet guy walks into her life…and starts serving up some seriously mixed signals. She’s got a lot on her plate, and for a girl who’s been burned before, risking it all is easier said than done.
It’s time for Hudson to ask herself what she really wants, and how much she’s willing to sacrifice to get it. Because in a place where opportunities are fleeting, she knows this chance may very well be her last…."
Have you seen the amazing trailer? I love it! I told Sarah it reminded me of one of my favorite movies, WAITRESS, and she said she likes to think of her book as WAITRESS meets CUTTING EDGE. Awesome! I think Sarah has a winner with this one.
