Miss Fortune Cookie
Meet Erin. Smart student, great daughter, better friend. Secretly the mastermind behind the popular advice blog Miss Fortune Cookie. Totally unaware that her carefully constructed life is about to get crazy.
It all begins when her ex-best friend sends a letter to her blog— and then acts on her advice. Erin’s efforts to undo the mess will plunge her into adventure, minor felonies, and possibly her very first romance.
What’s a likely fortune for someone no longer completely in control of her fate? Hopefully nothing like: You will become a crispy noodle in the salad of life.
This is another one of those young adult books that I would have eaten up when I was in middle school and high school. I fell in love with Erin from almost the very beginning. I like how she is an Irish girl trying to fit into the Asian culture, after growing up in China. I especially love her alter ego as Miss Fortune Cookie, and how she uses those fortunes in her advice column.
A lot of the struggles she and her friends face are common to teens today. There's the stress of picking a college, plus pleasing parents, balancing friendships, and finding young love.
It was a fun read and I look forward to reading more from this author!
