Hot Dog Girl By Jennifer Dugan


After an embarrassing loss to her ex-girlfriend in their first basketball game of the season, Scottie Zajac gets into a fender bender with the worst possible person: her nemesis, Irene Abraham, who is as beautiful as she is mean. When the damage sends Irene's car to the shop for weeks' worth of repairs, the girls are forced to carpool for the foreseeable future.

Fifteen-year-old Morgan has a secret: She can't wait to escape the perfect little island where she lives. She's desperate to finish high school and escape her sad divorced mom, her volatile little brother, and worst of all, her great group of friends...who don't understand Morgan at all. Because really, Morgan's biggest secret is that she has a lot of secrets, including the one about wanting to kiss another girl. Then one night, Morgan is saved from drowning by a mysterious girl named Keltie. The two become friends, and suddenly life on the island doesn't seem so stifling anymore.


* She's landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou's never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who's always been up for anything, suddenly isn't when it comes to Lou's quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou's scheme to get close to Nick.* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland--ever--unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.

Having broken up with her girlfriend, she's now scheming to get noticed by Nick, a boy she works with at a beloved amusement park that the owner has decided to sell after the summer season. Unfortunately, Nick is dating Jessa, who's cheating on him, but she's the pretty park princess while Lou is stuck in the hot dog costume, making it hard for her compete. Lou figures that she can get close to Nick by pretending to date her best female friend, Seeley, and Seeley agrees to the plan even though it really doesn't make any sense. The crew does become closer, however, as Lou enlists their help in plotting to prevent the park's closure. While the romance plot(s) may have the sticky substance of cotton candy, there are some [End Page 341] tender moments between Lou and her dad, Nick turns out to be a great guy, and Lou's energetic, readable voice makes her a sympathetic character even when, or especially when, she is confessing her flaws. Readers looking for a frothy summer read won't regret this. KC

I was first captivated by the stunning cover, but stayed because I love stories about groups of friends and the emotions and connections that bind them for better or worse. Deep in Providence showcases this beautifully through the lenses of Miliani, Inez, and Natalie, three girls whose lives are shattered when their friend Jasmine is killed by a drunk driver. The girls turn to Filipino spells and folklore in an attempt to bring Jasmine back from the dead. Desperation and yearning bleed through these pages, and by the end, I was sobbing. This book is a beautiful exploration of grief, told in the tenderest way. 041b061a72
