BACON PIE

Candace Robinson & Gerardo Delgadillo

B2297DDB-AFC2-45B2-AB18-54F6EB895F1B

Lia Abbie has the easy life—kicking it back with old school video games, hanging out with her best friend Barnabas, and alternating her living schedule between the apartments of her two dads and her mom.

Kiev Jimenez is a theater geek who loves him some Shakespeare and taking care of his pet armadillo. He has one set goal in life: obtaining the role of Horatio for the Hamlet school play.

When a showdown between Lia and Kiev lands them in the principal’s office, they’re forced into volunteer work at the cringe-worthy Piggy Palooza Festival, or risk being suspended. Lia and Kiev aren’t thrilled about the situation, especially when it interferes with Lia’s relaxed life and Kiev’s theater role. But by working together, they may find more than just bacon—possibly a little love in the air.

I always thought I’d like anything as long as you wrapped it in bacon. That is, until Kiev and Lia went to the Piggy Palooza Festival and I read about some of the bacon things they had there. No! I’m not going to tell you! You have to read the book!! But, I will never think that way again.

Ok…I’m getting ahead of myself. If you read the nice little summary that was written to tell you what the book is about, then you know that Kiev and Lia have to volunteer at this festival as a punishment for something that went down at school. No! I’m not going to tell you what that is either! Read the book!

What you need to know is that this book is DEFINITELY WORTH THE READ….SO READ IT!!! Candace Robinson and Gerardo Delgadillo flow beautifully together in this book. These two are a match made in heaven, with regards to writing!! They are both really great at writing characters and making you get completely immersed in their lives.

This book has a GREAT CAST OF CHARACTERS!!!

There is:

Kiev Jimenez and his pet armadillo, Pepe (I love Pepe)

Vi (Vienna) Jimenez (Kiev’s sister)

Mr. Jimenez

The Jimenez family are Mexican. Mr. Jimenez emigrated from Mexico before the kids were born. But he insists they only speak Spanish when at home, that way they will always be fluent in the language.

Cole Novotny and his car, Mr. Corey (Cole is Kiev’s best friend)

Lia (Ophelia) Abbie

Amanda (Lia’s Mom)

The Daddies – Dom and Alex (Lia’s Dads)

Lia’s Mom, her dads and Barnabas’ family all live in the same apartment complex, so she can walk from one to another.

Barnabas Lao (Lia’s best friend)

Channery & Dara Lao (Barnabas’ very little sisters)

Mrs. Lao

Sophie Mattox (You’ll see)

So, I don’t normally go to the trouble of writing out an entire cast of characters in my review. But I’m in love with these characters! And maybe I have a little book crush on Kiev! *blush* I KNOW HE’S TOO YOUNG FOR ME, but it’s ok because it’s a book crush…right?

This is a fun book guys! It is a YA Contemporary, but it also has humor, sarcasm (gotta love that), PEPE…I mean an Armedillo, romance (she says with hearts in her eyes), baking, piggies and most importantly BACON PIE!!

So make sure you get your book and ENJOY YOUR BACON PIE!!

Lia Abbie has the easy life—kicking it back with old school video games,
hanging out with her best friend Barnabas, and alternating her living schedule
between the apartments of her two dads and her mom.

 

Kiev Jimenez is a theater geek who loves him some Shakespeare and taking care
of his pet armadillo. He has one set goal in life: obtaining the role of
Horatio for the Hamlet school play.

 

When a showdown between Lia and Kiev lands them in the principal’s office,
they’re forced into volunteer work at the cringe-worthy Piggy Palooza Festival,
or risk being suspended. Lia and Kiev aren’t thrilled about the situation,
especially when it interferes with Lia’s relaxed life and Kiev’s theater role.
But by working together, they may find more than just bacon—possibly a little
love in the air.

Excerpt:
The door is
already wide open. Mr. Walker is missing in action, but two guys are already
there—Tweedle Jerk and Tweedle Jerkier.
I’m not
dealing with this crap today. I march up to Cole, who is sitting in my seat
again, and watch as Kiev’s eyes seem to follow me all the way until I’m
standing in between both of them.
“You need
to get out of my seat,” I say to Cole. Does he have his usual basketball shirt
on today? He does.
He holds up
both hands like he’s trying to tame a wild boar. “Calm down. Calm down, Miss
Ophelia Abbie. The bell has not announced the start of this oh-so-wonderful
class.”
I give him
a look of disdain. “Enough with the Ophelia stuff.”
“What’s
wrong with the name Ophelia?” Kiev pipes in. “It’s like the name from Hamlet.”
“What?” I
turn to Kiev, not sure what this idiot is talking about.
“You know,
O-phe-li-a.” He draws the name out super slowly to get his point across.
“I don’t
give a crap about Hamlet—that has nothing to do with my name,” I huff.
Tapping his
fingers on the desk like he’s typing on a keyboard, Kiev stares at my face.
“Are you sure your parents didn’t name you after the character?”
“Who the hell
names their kid after a stupid Shakespearian play?” I’ve read two, and I hated
them both.
“Plenty of
people. Juliet Weaver, in our grade, was named after Romeo and Juliet.”
“Quit being
pretentious.”
“Quit being
a—”
I narrow my
eyes at him. “A what?”
“You know
what you’re being.”
“Shut up,
Kiev. Oh, my parents named me after the capital of Russia, because I’m such an
important person who has to answer questions for people when they don’t need
help answering!” I yell.
“Um, Kiev
is actually the capital of Ukraine.” He bobs his head. “You know that, right?”
I hear Cole’s loud hooting to my right.
That’s it!
Without thinking, I slam my fist directly into Kiev’s nose.
