Review of Salt and Sugar by Rebecca Carvahlo

Young Adult

Salt and Sugar by [Rebecca Carvalho]

The enemy of my enemy is my friend, but can I trust them? Lari and Pedro’s families run rival bakeries that are across the street from each other. With Deals Deals moving into town, the bakeries livelihoods are at stake. The two team up to try and save their respective bakeries but the blood between their families seems insurmountable.
The book was a bit slow at first but the feud between Lari and Pedro reminded me of Romeo and Juliet. I really wanted to know what happened between their families to make them such enemies. The little hints interspersed throughout the book kept me reading. By the end of the book, I was in tears, laughing and having that warm “feel good” moment time and time again.
I would put this book into the hands of any middle/high school student who loves romance. The farthest the romance goes is a kiss, which is perfect for younger readers. The story would also appeal to middle and high schoolers because Lari and Pedro are both in high school and struggling to find their place in their own families.
Many thanks to Net Galley and Inkyard Press for providing me with an ARC of this book.
