My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received this book as part of the author program by BooksGoSocial.com in exchange for an honest review.
I loved the book. I think it is one of the most insanely sensible books, I’ve read this year. It was so funny and yet so touching, And I would definitely have to say that my first YA without any romance… zilch… nada… absolutely none at all—making it all the more an interesting read.
With an overdose of courtship, sex, romance and PDA in most of the books that I’ve come across recently, I found ‘The Cilantro in Apple Pie’ a very refreshing and endearing story—a welcome change from the milieu out there.
For a debut novel, Knight has truly delivered a much better work than some of the more popular authors out there. A fine story in itself but the writing style is impressive. It flows smoothly, encouraging you to read it in one go. The characters are well–developed. I liked the way the protagonists Rubie and Gil have been drawn. Their friendship is truly precious and completely relatable. You will enjoy their skirmishes and taunts and also savor the relationship they share.
A book definitely worth the time spent on it.
