Thrill Ride

Thrill Ride
By Rachel Hawthorne
Avon Books, 2006
Audience: All Teens

From Goodreads:
Thrill Ride! 
One-day admission: $15

Summer job: 

Living on my own (plus roommates) 
Rides are free (but avoid the roller coasters—too scary!) 
Super-hot coworker . . . 

Periodic homesickness
Dressing like Gretel for job in fairyland gift shop
Super-hot coworker . . . and boyfriend back home. Too thrilling!

This was my third Rachel Hawthorne book, and I'm starting to notice... let's say patterns.

  1. Loss of virginity
  2. Relocation (moving, vacation, summer job elsewhere, etc.)
  3. Is taken but distracted by another boy
  4. Conservative personality meets outgoing friend
  5. No parents
  6. The movie Titanic
  7. Other outdated references
Do I care that these books are so similar?

No, of course not. 

It's summer, and this is cotton candy for my brain. It's perfect for this time of year.

Enjoy it!
