Crazy as Chocolate based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
I enjoyed this story very much, and from a psychology student's perspective thought it was accurate and honest. Great characters and story line.
There are hundreds of books you could say were amusing, or you found funny, but 'Crazy as Chocolate' leads the pack. It's on the top of the list! Izzy and her sister, Ellie, are the classic sisters who cope through loss together, but have experienced life in a tragic, yet hilarious way. I laughed, I cried and I'll continue to read 'Crazy as Chocolate' for years to come just to remind myself how important, however comical life truly can be sometimes.
