This is Robin Palmer's first YA book that isn't a fairy tale retelling, but her fans have no reason to worry. Everything that makes her books so great is still here, including her addictive writing style, quirky sense of humor, and the story's strong sense of heart. What is different aboutThe Corner of Bitter and Sweet is that the subject material is heavier, though it doesn't always feel that way. Some books that deal with Tough Subjects tend to border on melodramatic, but TCoBaS manages to be realistic, without being depressing (which is why the title is so perfect).
