What's fun about this book is that it's told in 5 parts- the first four give each character to give their own account of the two days spent at the candy factory and then the fifth goes back to Logan for the night before and day of the contest. It was interesting to read what each character was thinking during a particular scene but it also didn't get repetitive as the same scenes weren't focused on in each part. Not only that, but I really enjoyed the callbacks to previous sections and having to piece the puzzle together as the story went on. What was also cool was the various prior connections between the four kids that come out as the novel goes on.
The humor in this book was fantastic. I was laughing out loud many times during the course of the book. It was wonderful. Also, candy will have to be present while reading this novel because the kids take a tour of a candy factory and of course have to make their own candy as well, and Mass doesn't spare on the descriptions. It was sad for me because I was poor at the time of reading it so I couldn't go out and buy some candy to munch on. It was amazing too to read all the fun candy names and descriptions she came up with for the factory to have, as well as the contest entries too.
Overall, this is a wonderful middle-grade novel with a fun and fast storyline but with some great depth to it. A must-read!
Daisy Carpenter is a bright and cheerful girl but a mysterious one as well. Besides being funny and kind-hearted, she is amazingly strong, reads romance novels when she should be working on her contest entry, is in the habit of talking to herself, and arrives at Life Is Sweet on a horse. Despite her overall confidence, Daisy's contest entry remains an inedible pile of green goo.
About a year ago, Miles saw a girl drown. He was in a rowboat with his parents and saw a young girl, who was being chased by bees, head into the water, never to emerge. Since then he has been obsessed with death and the afterlife, and torn apart by guilt because he was unable to save her. The librarian who works at the library where he spends much of his time (often looking for secret or magical messages in books) suggested he enter the candy contest, and he's excited to get inside Life Is Sweet, a factory once famous for its annual picnics and tours. He's inspired to create a sweet honey bee candy in memory of the girl he never knew but thinks about constantly.Read more ›
