Bacon Pie was HILARIOUS! I absolutely adored the characters and their quirky personalities. Kiev was, in my opinion, a teenager with some depth. When you witness his desire to get the part of Horatio in the production of Shakespeare, you can practically see the ball rolling toward disaster. Lia and her relationship with her two dads was so endearing that I swear I got puppy-dog eyes reading it. And the romantic combustion that is at the center of these two delightful characters is a Hallmark movie waiting to happen. Then, there’s bacon. Come on, who doesn’t want to read a story about bacon. All that was missing was some shredded cabbage, mayo, and two slices of bread! But seriously, their budding relationship was so very fun to watch. And I want to go to a Piggy Palooza Festival one day!  If you’re looking for a quirky, fun read with well-rounded characters, whitty dialogue, and bacon, this is definitely the book for you! Candace and Gerardo are my new dynamic duo!!!!

Thanks to Evernight Teen and an author request for the opportunity to read and review Bacon Pie by Candace Robinson and Gerard Odelgadillo. Evernight Teen. Lia and Kiev began a relationship under the strangest of circumstances; Lia punches Kiev in the face! For punishment, they have to perform community service at the local festival that celebrates all things pig. Teen angst, awkward friends, family diversity and family struggles round out this story to make a charming and fun realistic fiction read for young adults. I enjoyed Lia’s and Kiev’s differences in and passion for their hobbies, retro video games and Shakespearean plays, respectively. Tough topics are lightly addressed and added to the depth of the storyline and overall, the cute theme and humor won me over, 4 stars! * I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary review consideration.

This is a super cute story for young adult readers who are bored by high-techy or high fantasy books. Bacon Pie is down-to-earth and real! It's your classmates, it's your neighbors, it's your school in a way only YOU know it. It's hilarious and fun. And I love the fact that Kiev is so into Shakespeare (and the school play he wants to audition for) that he wears a t-shirt that reads: I Put the Shake in Shakespeare. After high-schoolers Kiev and Lia get into trouble, the principal gives them an ultimatum — either volunteer at the Piggy Palooza Festival or be suspended. Neither of the two are happy about either choice, but both agree to volunteer at this "everything bacon" festival and it turns out to be a crazy experience! Lots of laughs, a few "yuck!" moments, but all fun. I was especially drawn to this book because of another book I read by co-author Gerardo Delgadillo called "Summerlypse." He has a realistic YA writing style that is refreshing and catchy.

I always thought I’d like anything as long as you wrapped it in bacon. That is, until Kiev and Lia went to the Piggy Palooza Festival and I read about some of the bacon things they had there. No! I’m not going to tell you! You have to read the book!! But, I will never think that way again. Ok...I’m getting ahead of myself. If you read the nice little summary that was written to tell you what the book is about, then you know that Kiev and Lia have to volunteer at this festival as a punishment for something that went down at school. No! I’m not going to tell you what that is either! Read the book! What you need to know is that this book is DEFINITELY WORTH THE READ....SO READ IT!!! Candace Robinson and Gerardo Delgadillo flow beautifully together in this book. These two are a match made in heaven, with regards to writing!! They are both really great at writing characters and making you get completely immersed in their lives. This book has a GREAT CAST OF CHARACTERS!!! There is: Kiev Jimenez and his pet armadillo, Pepe (I love Pepe) Vi (Vienna) Jimenez (Kiev’s sister) Mr. Jimenez The Jimenez family are Mexican. Mr. Jimenez emigrated from Mexico before the kids were born. But he insists they only speak Spanish when at home, that way they will always be fluent in the language. Cole Novotny and his car, Mr. Corey (Cole is Kiev’s best friend) Lia (Ophelia) Abbie Amanda (Lia’s Mom) The Daddies - Dom and Alex (Lia’s Dads) Lia’s Mom, her dads and Barnabas’ family all live in the same apartment complex, so she can walk from one to another. Barnabas Lao (Lia’s best friend) Channery & Dara Lao (Barnabas’ very little sisters) Mrs. Lao Sophie Mattox (You’ll see) So, I don’t normally go to the trouble of writing out an entire cast of characters in my review. But I’m in love with these characters! Annnnd maybe I have a little book crush on Kiev! *blush* I KNOW HE’S TOO YOUNG FOR ME, but it’s ok because it’s a book crush...right? This is a fun book guys! It is a YA Contemporary, but it also has humor, sarcasm (gotta love that), PEPE...I mean an Armedillo, romance (she says with hearts in her eyes), baking, piggies and most importantly BACON PIE!! So make sure you get your book and ENJOY YOUR BACON PIE!!
