My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sarah Ockler’s Bittersweet opens with a flashback of Hudson Avery when she was still a figure-skating superstar, before everything got screwed up. Since then, she has been working at the family diner, baking and creating extraordinary cupcakes. Then, she gets a letter in the mail inviting her to a competition that could restart her ice skating career. Her mother would break down if she found out, since ice skating is such a big reminder of Hudson’s father, so Hudson must practice in secret. One day, a boy from the hockey team runs into her and things start getting even more complicated. Now she must balance the diner, her friends, and her family, without letting anyone get hurt. This novel may not please everyone, as some may see it as a stereotypical story but it does have a few unexpected turns. Overall, I would recommend the story to anyone who enjoys a book with a bit of romance along with a tad of drama. – Stephanie S. ‘17
