The Sweetness of Salt
Author: Cecilia Galante
Language: PG13 10 light swears, 5 "F"
Level: High School
Recommendation: Good Read
Summary: Julia is a high school valedictorian with a college scholarship and a coveted summer internship. But when her older sister, Sophie, shows up at graduation determined to reveal some long buried secrets, Julia’s carefully constructed plans come to a halt. Julia follows Sophie back to Vermont, where Sophie is opening a bakery. What follows is a summer of revelations—some heartwarming, some heartbreaking, and all slowly pointing Julia toward a new understanding of herself and of the sister she never knew.
Review: I read the book, needing to read a book with a "yellow" cover. I expected it to be a cute book, maybe a little bit "bitter" from the title. The book was full of secrets and characters who had a lot of "problems" to figure out. I enjoyed the read, but found myself wishing the author had omitted the "F" words, as they didn't add to the storyline at all. Good characters with a great coming of age storyline.
