Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer PS
Lucy and her 2 best friends, Evie and Mary Jordan have one of the most eventful summers of their lives. Everything changes when the artist Mr. Savoi and his son Dewie move into their small Louisiana town. All of the girls get a taste of summer love. Lucy begins a relationship with Dewie, yet she also has to make sense of her feelings for her older drama teacher, Mr. Banks, whose daughter she babysits. Then, her mother keeps disappearing for long periods of time, suspiciously at Mr. Savoi's house and Lucy thinks that her mother is having an affair. By the end of the summer, Lucy and her friends learn that love turns up in the most unexpected places.
I thought that this book had some very entertaining scenes. It was a little slow in the beginning, but it definately picked up as the story went on. By the end, I couldn't put the book down. The characters were very interesting and I loved that the story was set in Louisiana. Love, Cajun Style is the perfect summer read and I'm looking forward to seeing what Diana Les Becquets will cook up next!
