A few months ago I was checking out Alice Hoffman’s latest, a YA Novel, and the librarian told me that Sara Addison Allen reminded her a lot of Alice Hoffman. I finally remembered when I was at the library and checked out the Sugar Queen.
I’m not sure it was like Alice Hoffman – it had some elements of Alice Hoffman, it was a bit mystical and pushed the reader to believe in some supernatural-ish forces, however it seemed childish. It almost reminded me of a YA novel in many ways. It was a good read and I’ll definitely check out Allen’s other novels.
