I would give this book 3.5 for a review.
Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way:
* She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog.
* Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after.
* Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick.
* And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing.
Jennifer Dugan’s sparkling debut coming-of-age queer romance stars a princess, a pirate, a hot dog, and a carousel operator who find love–and themselves–in unexpected people and unforgettable places.
I enjoyed this read. I thought it was such a fun summer read and I really like the cast of characters but especially the setting of the old theme park. I also really liked the town the book was set it and how this book had a intreating big plot that i don’t often see in books. I really enjoyed the diversity of the realitonships in this book and it was a fun read. The lead character was not my favorite but she grew on me throughout the novel. I really did enjoy this read and flew through it. I think the setting and the romance diversity was the highlight of this novel.
