The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen


After reading The Girl Who Chased the Moon, I frantically got my hands on as many books as I could by Sarah Addison Allen. I listened to the audio version and the narrator had such a grating southern accent it was hard to take the book seriously. Narrator aside, the book itself was pretty awful. In a nutshell, the characters are: Josey, a fat 27-year-old who hides sweets in her closet; Della Lee, the town sometimes-prostitute who has decided to live in Josey's closet (???); and Chloe, a women who works in a sandwich shop who eventually becomes friends with Josey. Throughout the story, we see Josey navigate her relationship with her controlling mother, Josey and Chloe in their respective relationships, and try to find out what the heck Della Lee is doing in Josey's closet. The ending has a cute/interesting twist to it but it isn't enough to save the rest of the book.
