Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I will be as wild as I wanna be."

After getting tossed from her posh boarding school, wild, willful, and coffee-addicted Cyd Charisse returns to San Francisco to live with her parents. But there's no way Cyd can survive in her parents' pristine house. Lucky for Cyd she's got Gingerbread, her childhood rag doll and confidante, and her new surfer boyfriend.

When Cyd's rebelliousness gets out of hand, her parents ship her off to New York City to spend the summer with "Frank real-dad," her biological father. Trading in her parents for New York City grunge and getting to know her bio-dad and step-sibs is what Cyd has been waiting for her whole life. But summer in the city is not what Cyd expects — and she's far from the daughter or sister that anyone could have imagined.

Review:

"Why You'll Dig it: Likeable Cyd will seem like one of your buds." Twist magazine

Review:

"Newcomer Cohn's Cyd-isms — "sexy-swish hips" and "New Yorkie York" — bring to mind the funky vocabulary of Francesca Lia Block's hip heroine, Weetzie Bat....All high school and public libraries should add the irrepressible Cyd to their shelves." VOYA

Review:

"Funny and irreverent reading with teen appeal that's right on target." School Library Journal

Review:

"[Gingerbread] takes the reader on a journey through the mind of Cyd Charisse, a troubled teenager who's trying to find herself. But this is not just Another Teen Novel: It's pretty edgy..." ELLEgirl

Synopsis:

After getting tossed from her posh boarding school, rebellious Cyd gets shipped off to spend the summer with "Frank real-dad," her biological father. But summer in the city is not what Cyd expects.
