A review by darbyart
Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith


I was disappointed by this story.

Quincie is high-schooler whose parents died when she was small. She inherits her parent's restaurant and starts to make some very poor decisions - drinking being one them.

I thought from reading the description it sounded interesting. And being a fan of books about vampire/werewolf. But this story fell so flat. I did make it through it as I just was curious where it would end up or get better. None of the characters make me feel invested in them. And I felt the story ends badly and just kind of like "that was the end really?" Not a book I would recommend and because it was so bad I doubt I will be picking up any other title by this author.
