A Review: Love is a Four-Letter Word by Vikki Vansickle

Love Is a Four-Letter WordLove Is a Four-Letter Word by Vikki Vansickle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After finishing both of Vikki Vansickle’s “Clarissa Delaney Books” (I don’t know if she has a name for this “series” or not) I’m truly enchanted by the small town vibe she’s created, the characters and am sorry to leave them behind. Clarissa is a simply delightful character. She’s smart, slightly over-dramatic and loyal to a fault.  The voice is hilarious and authentic and I laughed out loud a number of times – particularly during a Pizza Hut date scene which included a waitress named Melanie (so how could I not love it.  She totally gets the Middle School/Junior High vibe of friends and relationships and the confusions of love. I highly recommend this book and the first one in the series, Words that Start with B. I cannot wait for the next book. I hope that there is one.
