This week’s book:
Title: Kale, My Ex, and Other Things to Toss in a Blender
Author: Lisa Greenwald
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: May 30, 2017
Summary (from Goodreads): When Mia’s summer starts with an epic breakup, she’s sure the rest of the vacation will be miserable. But her best friend, Justine, would never let that happen. Their plan has two parts. One: use their summer job driving a snow cone truck to keep tabs on Mia s ex in person. Two: create a fake persona to connect with Mia’s ex online.
Soon both plans have morphed into something so much bigger. Add some kale to a snow cone and they’ve got the hottest smoothie in town . . . and more money than they could have imagined. And when Mia’s ex starts falling for the online girl, there’s a revenge plot just waiting to be born. A guy who dumps a girl because he thinks her thighs are too thick deserves to have his heart broken by a fake girlfriend, right? All’s fair in love and smoothies. . . .
This book sounds like such a fun read! I have always loved revenge books, and the main character getting back at her ex is sure to be entertaining. I also love the idea of the characters working in a snow cone truck. I have never seen this before in a book, and I am excited to see how it will play out. Kale, My Ex, and Other Things to Toss in a Blender looks like such a perfect book for the summer, and I can’t wait to pick it up!
