More About the Author

The great wish of my adolescence was to be diagnosed with scoliosis. Then I would be like Deenie. I LOVED the book "Deenie" by Judy Blume. I wanted to look like Deenie; I wanted her disease; I even wanted to live in Deenie's town, Elizabeth, New Jersey, a short hop from my dream destination, New York City. Although now that I live in Manhattan as an adult (with a fairly normal spine, I'm told), Elizabeth, New Jersey is more known to me as the place with the long lines at IKEA instead of as the hometown of Deenie. Like Deenie, my priorities eventually shifted.
I never did get that scoliosis diagnosis, but from my favorite childhood authors such as Judy Blume, E.L. Konigsburg and Ellen Conford, I did get inspiration for another goal: to write. I can't remember a time when I wasn't trying to create stories. When I started seriously writing fiction, I didn't set out to write specifically for young adults, but as my writing matured, it became clear that when I got stuck writing in teen voices, it was a good place to be stuck. The author question I get asked most often now is how I am able to write from the perspective of a teenager, as if I were in that character's head. The honest answer is, I don't know. I try not to think about it too much, for fear of ruining it. But I do feel like I can readily channel my own teenage self and tap into those feelings, and that's something I try to convey through the written word.
When teen readers write to me now telling me how much they relate to characters I've created -- Cyd Charisse in "Gingerbread" and "Shrimp," Annabel and Lucy in "The Steps" and "Two Steps Forward," or Wonder in "Pop Princess" -- I think, I relate, too: I wanted to be Deenie!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The follow up novel to the fun and spunky "Gingerbread" is even better than expected and it succeeds in drawing the reader deeper into the colorful world of teen Cyd Charisse. I would strongly suggest reading the first book to get the full effect of the depth the author has created, after all knowing where Cyd comes from makes her future even more interesting! Cyd is on the lookout for romance, good food and new friends and finding that perfect cup of coffee someone has her obsessed with...

Growing up is hard to do, sure, but Cyd finds the express route into the readers hearts without loosing her coolness and charm. She's got opinions, is very much in love with Shrimp who's status was ambiguous as of last novel and is trying to make new friends her age and make amends with her parents. Not to mention her biological father Frank back in New York is trying to make for more time for her as she gets older, her half siblings are entering her life and changing her perspective on the plans she has made with Shrimp. Torn between what she all ready has in San Francisco and the new prospects in the culinary fields in New York City, Cyd must make some brave choices that are tough when you're sixteen and feel torn between being a kid and a young adult.

This book was so much fun, I was drawn into it and felt irritated whenever I had to put it down and go do life stuff; like going to work, eating dinner or talking to people...I am all ready holding part three of the series "Cupcake" and can't wait to jump back into the witty, charming, funny and grown up world of Cyd Charisse. I wouldn't say that this is a book for young kids since there is some hardcore romantic stuff going on, few bad words but it's what give his book that real edge, it's not all pink and pretty and fairy tales. Being a teenager is hard but oh so fun to read about!

Cyd Charisse didn't think that it was possible, but now that she's home from her long summer in New York City, she's got one thing on her mind: to win back the love of Shrimp, the utterly hottest surfer-artist in all of San Francisco. Sure, he broke up with her before she left for NYC, but the big apple helped her to grow up a bit, and she doesn't plan on letting him escape her feminine wiles without a fight. However, while she's trying to get her true love back, Cyd must also find a way to keep the peace with her mother, seeing as how she's doing nothing but bug her about college applications. If only she realized that Cyd plans on spending all of her time after high school bumming on the beach with Shrimp, not sitting in a stuffy classroom.

As a fan of Rachel Cohn, I was ecstatic to read this new novel starring Cyd Charisse. As always, Cohn's wonderful, dramatic, individual voice shines through in every character found in SHRIMP, and brings about many new situations. Cyd is cooler than ever, as are the descriptions of San Francisco. Fans of the novel GINGERBREAD will find them flocking to Cohn's latest.

The sequel to Rachel Cohn's Gingerbread was definitely captivating. If you have read Rachel Cohn's previous book this sequel is just as good, if not better. There are many surprises that come along in this sequel. Cyd Charisse is back home, San Francisco, and on a mission to reignite the relationship Shrimp and her once had. They go through a lot, including break ups and make ups, but its all worth it. Another surprise is the definitely the new and improved relationship that she has developed with her Mom, no more blow ups and arguing (well at least not as much). She discovers a lot along with the new girl friends she makes, yes Cyd Charisse is capable of having girl friends; I know, I couldn't believe it either when I read it.

The lovely Sugar Pie and Fernando are still together thanks to Cyd Charisse and her wonderful matchmaking skills, oh, and there's a surprise as well when it comes to them in the end of the book. Other characters reintroduce themselves into the book and make the book all more interesting. Cyd Charisse takes a short trip to New York to visit her brother and more twists and turns are encountered. Cyd Charisse even figures out what she wants to do with her life to finally receive true happiness.

I loved this book, it was so interesting and related to me as a teenager living in San Francisco, the place where the book takes place. I found myself getting excited for Cyd Charisse and couldn't put the book down. I was instantly addicted to the family drama, the girls' days of fun, the interesting conversations, all of this made the book an unforgettable read. Rachel Cohn takes and brings Cyd Charisse to life, I instantly felt like I was getting to know a girl from school. She took the character and put her into situations teenage girls encounter now a day.

Format: Hardcover
I did not read Gingerbread, but Shrimp is a very good book. It is about this girl named Cyd Charisse and she is in her last year of high school and it just explains her relationship with her boyfriend Shrimp and new friendships with really unique friends. I especially like this book because I think it is well written and any teenager who reads it will relate to it. She describes the problems she has as she decides what she will do with the rest of her life. I would like to read a sequel to this book that tells how her life is going in college and to see if she finds a boy like shrimp. I definitely recommend this book for ages 15 and up.
