    Review:


    "Gingersnap" by Patricia Reilly Giff was a very well written read that will give us some historical history that was going on during WWII. Along with this being a family read it does have some ghost issues. This author is a wonderful story teller being about to take you so a different time. This was during a time in history WWII when a brother (Rob)after becoming of age, had been taking care of his sister (Jayna) nicknamed 'Gingersnap.' Rob is called to duty and has to leave his dear sister who had once been in foster care, now in the care of a landlady, Celine. All was well until a tragedy happens to Rob's vessel sunk in the 'Battle of Okinawa' and once again Jayna is feeling alone. Jayna had been told by her brother about a 'cookbook' that had the name and address of a bakery called Gingersnap...so what will she do with this information? Is her brother alive and will they be united? Who is this owner of this bakery? What was the ghost all about? What's up with the soups..."Don't Think About it Soup" or "Feel Better Vegetable Soup." This is where I way you must pick up this good read to see what all is going to happen with Jayna. All of these questions will be answered from your read. The characters were all well developed and interesting.


    "Gingersnap" was a wonderful read of 'family, hope, courage and food.' Would I recommend this read? Yes! Be ready to enjoy a excellent read.
