The Sugar Queen

Set in the mountains of North Carolina, Sarah Addison Allen's book The Sugar Queen is about Josey, a woman in her late 20's and absolutely under her mother's thumb. Josey's one secret pleasure is her stash of candy and other confections in her bedroom closet. Otherwise she lives at her mother's beck and call. Her life changes one morning when she finds in her closet a woman she knows only slightly.

This story, like Garden Spells, was sweet. Josey changes and her life changes without leaving a trail of meanness and selfish destruction behind her.
