Pizza Girl – Jean Kyoung Frazier ★★★★

Blurb; Eighteen years old, pregnant, and working as a pizza delivery girl in suburban Los Angeles, our charmingly dysfunctional heroine is deeply lost and in complete denial about it all. She’s grieving the death of her father (who she has more in common with than she’d like to admit), avoiding her supportive mom and loving boyfriend, and flagrantly ignoring her future.

Her world is further upended when she becomes obsessed with Jenny, a stay-at-home mother new to the neighborhood, who comes to depend on weekly deliveries of pickled covered pizzas for her son’s happiness. As one woman looks toward motherhood and the other towards middle age, the relationship between the two begins to blur in strange, complicated, and ultimately heartbreaking ways.

My Review; I don’t know how I came accross this one but I’m glad I did. It’s a shortish read under 200 pages about a pizza delivery girl age 18 and pregnant. She becomes obsessed with one of her customers which escalates towards the end. Pretty wierd but made the book interesting and kept the pages turning to find out what would happen.

Perfect for young adult readers a bit of chick-lit but not much. I did enjoy it a bit of a slow start at the beginning but it gets better. The ending for me was a bit sudden leaving me with some questions would love a sequel. This is the authors debut novel and very well written, I love the cover too. A well deserved four stars from me. I would recommend.
