Bittersweet - Sarah Ockler This book reminded me of Disney movies. It was full of moments that could have been scripted for a T.V film. There was a familiarity to the story line that reminded me of a couple of films, 'Ice Princess' and another Disney movie, 'Go Figure' They both dealt with ice-skaters and 'Go Figure' had both an ice-skater and a ice hockey team as well, only the plot with 'Bittersweet' is definitely different in this case.'Bittersweet' is a kind of feel-good book, even though the main character, Hudson, is going through the worst moments of her young life. Funnily enough, she hides her pain in cupcakes. I really liked how this story progressed. It took me from the incident that made Hudson turn her back on everything she knew, to Hudson finally realizing what made her happy. I enjoyed her persona and even felt a little sorry for her mother seemed to hassle her.The other characters in this book was good too - including an adorable love interest in Josh. The relationships between the characters felt real. It was also hard to see how some of the friendships changed and evolved as I was reading. I was annoyed, angry and a little sad at how Hudson was with some of them. But, at the same time, I also resented Hudson's mom a bit, even though I came to understand why she was that way.The writing was fun and flowed nicely. This is the type of book to read if you've just finished a book that was intense or if you just want to relax after a hard day where you don't really want to think about anything. So it's fair to say that even though I don't have anything really bad to say about 'Bittersweet', it didn't have the 'oomph' that made me fall in love with it. I didn't go on to remember anything about it, except that Hudson made cupcakes and she was an ice-skater. That being said though, I did like it and I would read it again if I had the option.I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Disney films or is looking for a light read.Now for my rating:-Three out of five stars.This review can be found here:-
