DEFINATLY A GOOD BOOK.....however, the plot skiped all over the place (i think in an attempt to try a new writing style) and it was extreemly difficult to read. on the other hand, i would have to say that there is something for everyone. i chose to read Como agua para chocolate (Like water for Chocolate) and write an apa paper on Laura Esquivel. I loved the book SOOOOO much i went straight to the internet to find more books by her--- i DID like some aspects of the book but it wasnt as strong as her first book. i would recomend like water for chocolate to any teenage girl. IT"S FANTASTIC!!!! then, later maybe this book.

fantastic, racy. esquivel has yet again managed to use her amazing story telling skills to write yet another passion filled novel. not as original as "like water for chocolate" but still inspiring and leaves the reader hopeful....
