A signed copy of THE SWEETEST THING by Christina Mandelski

Donated by: Christina Mandelski

This book makes me hungry, and not for brains. For CAKE. I literally salivated my way through it. This is a terrific contemporary girl book with wit, heart, and the most swoon-worthy dad ever. ZOMG. Did I really just say that in public?

Prize details:
The winner will receive a signed hardcover of THE SWEETEST THING by Christina Mandelski.

In the world of Sheridan Wells, life is perfect when she's decorating a cake. Unfortunately everything else is a complete mess: her mom ran off years ago, her dad is more interested in his restaurant, and the idea of a boyfriend is laughable.

But Sheridan is convinced finding her mom will solve all her problems - only her dad's about to get a cooking show in New York, which means her dream of a perfect family will be dashed.

Using just the right amount of romance, family drama, and cute boys, The Sweetest Thing will entice fans with its perfect mixture of girl-friendly ingredients.

About Christina Mandelski:
Christina has a fondness for the beach, her family and good books. She also likes to travel, ride my bike, walk and go to the movies. When she's not doing these things, she can be found in her little loft office, writing! Growing up, she always had her face in a book, and at a pretty young age discovered that she also liked to write. At first she wrote romances that paired her and her friends up with certain pop stars from the 1980s. She moved on to the yearbook and newspaper staffs of her middle and high schools (which was great fun and she got out of class a lot).

In college she decided to get a degree in Creative Writing and many years later finally sat down and wrote her first novel for teens. She loves to write stories about family, finding your voice, faith, friends and falling in love.

Somewhere along the line she married a Cubs fan/math genius/funny guy and had two super cool daughters. They live in the Houston area with a half-house cat, half-cheetah named Spencer.
