Review: A Second Bite at the Apple

A Second Bite at the Apple - Dana Bate

I'm not sure why this book didn't grab me. Sydney is a solid character, I just wasn't really into her story. The whole local food movement is an interesting concept and I enjoyed the balance of personalities of the supporting characters. The overbearing "saving the world" date, the tempestuous boss, the charming man she shouldn't like and the very blunt bff. The supporting characters were interesting and helped create context for Sydney's story. 

 

I have to say, the whole moral dilemma of journalism seems like it's been done a lot in books and shows. What constitutes good reporting versus a cover up? At what point is someone legally obligated to address an issue? I think this story did a good job addressing some of those questions and dealt with the aftermath in a logical way. 

 

All in all is was a solid book with great character development and interesting plot points, it just didn't resonate with me. I hope you enjoy it!
