Practice Cake not only talks about baking, or cookies recipes, but also talks about problems that normal people can affront in their life. Maddie is a normal young girl, who lives with her sister, she has a boyfriend that doesn't understand why she is working at a bakery, he doesn't like her new job, and every single opportunity he has he lets her know his opinion. But she loves her job, is tiring, but she likes it, specially her co-worker, Drew. Is in that moment when everything gets a little bit more complicated.
Dalya Moon never disappoints me. Not only her writing style is amazing, but also her stories are wonderful. First she introduced me Charlie, a really sweet girl, but at the same time, very strong and brave.( Her first book - Read review here) And now, she comes with another lovely story full of incredible characters and real life situations. Maddie is, like I said before, like any girl. She can be your neighbor, a friend of yours, or just like you. She have her worries, her problems, and her necessities, and just for that reason, for been so real, is why I like her so much. Even though the story focus in Maddie, it also talks about the people around her, like for example, her sister and her problems, her boyfriend, her best friend and how she feels and how she behaves when she thinks that Maddie is affecting her career and of course, about Drew. Is he the enchanted prince Maddie is waiting for?
This book is really enjoyable. It caught my attention from the very first line and I couldn't put it down until I finished. I love Dalya Moon's writing and I think that I will love every book she writes. Her stories are always sweet, with a touch of reality, with really well developed characters that stay a little bit more in your mind after you've finished reading the book.
So, the only thing I can do is recommend you to read this wonderful book, because I know you'll like it as much I do.
