I need to preface this review by saying that I love Sarah Addison Allen’s novels. They are chick lit to the core, so if you’re not into that, you won’t enjoy them in the least bit. The Sugar Queen is the story of Josey Cirrini. She has a complicated relationship with her mother, sugary sweets, unfulfilled dreams and a stranger who has taken up residence in her closet. The story follows Josey’s burgeoning independence from a bitter and controlling mother, new relationships with friends, and a developing romance with Adam who is facing his own internal struggle. Allen includes a touch of magic and whimsy in her novels which make them a feel-good read.
