The Espressologist by Kristina Springer
Alright! Finally settled in everyone. Today's book is The Espressologist by Kristina Springer. The description of this book is:
High school senior Jane Turner works part-time at a Chicago coffeehouse with her friend Em. She begins to notice that people order drinks that fit their personality, and soon she has created a notebook of entries for nearly all coffee orders. On a whim, she begins matching drinks, and therefore couples, together, and the matches are a hit. But when her competitive boss finds out, he decides to use Jane's matchmaker talents to rev up business, causing confusion in her personal life. This debut is compulsively readable in spite of a predictable plotline and dialogue that is contrived at times. Springer has created a lovable, naive young woman in Jane, and even those who don't drink java will enjoy the frothy story.
I personally loved this book! I thought the plot sounded so cool and different! I love Jane so much; her character in this book is awesome! I think I'm starting to be able to predict Ya books pretty well cause I predicted a lot of stuff in this one! I would love to be able to do what Jane does in this book. It's so cute! Anyway, this book is only around 200 pages so it's a short and fast read. I thought the author did a really great job on this book. I love the cover too! Don't you guys think it's really pretty? Anyway, I hope you guys try this one out cause I think you'll like it! Happy reading :)
