You know how sometimes a book just pulls you in from the very first page?Well that's exactly how I felt when I started reading God Is In The Pancakes. It's AMAZING!!! The dialog is really good and funny (you can just picture it as a movie), the main character is someone I'd want to be friends with and I was literally laughing and crying at different points. The book's plot features a really controversial subject -- euthanasia -- but I really liked the way the author handled it and made me consider what I'd do if I were in this situation. This is just one of those books you can't stop thinking about, and I can't recommend it highly enough. FIVE +++ stars!!!

15-year-old Grace is having a hard time pulling her life together. Her sister's boyfriend is two-timing her and she wants to have sex with him; Grace's parents' divorce is taking a toll on the family; her father is trying to get in contact with her; and Grace's guy friend is kind of becoming a boyfriend. It's no wonder that her job as a Candy Striper at Hanover House is something she enjoys so much. While there, she meets an older gentleman named Mr. Sands with Lou Gehrig's Disease. He teaches her to play poker and becomes like a surrogate father to her. When her friend's health goes drastically downhill, Grace finds herself spending more and more time with Mr. Sands, as well as with his wife. When faced with a difficult request to help him die, Grace is aghast and uncertain of what to do. Will she get her life straightened out? Will she reconnect with her real father? Will she tell her sister that her boyfriend's cheating on her? What will Grace decide to do about Mr. Sands? A touching story about a caring young woman who has some difficult situations to deal with in life. The characters are well-developed and likable. The plot is slower-paced but keeps you interested. Readers who like realistic fiction and heartwarming novels will enjoy reading GOD IS IN THE PANCAKES.
