Book Review: Chop, Chop (Chop, Chop #1) by L. N. Cronk (Four Stars)
I decided right then that Laci was too good of a liar to ever trust again.
A gripping drama about the choices and consequences of an American teen. What it lacks in over-the-top emotion, it makes up in realism. David’s inner conflicts and humor ring true.
I had no idea what I truly wanted to do beyond that. Mom kept telling me not to worry about it . . . that lots of people didn’t decide what they wanted to do until years after they’d graduated from college. “Is that supposed to make me feel better?” I asked her, and she laughed.
As the author acknowledges it seems to draw young adult readers. Also an admittedly Christian story, it nonetheless portrays reality, not a sanitized fantasy.
“Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Thank you for helping me to find peace. I pray that you’ll have peace, too.”
Good YA is great. A lot of YA books these days.
