Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us
White Cat - Holly Black Pros:* It's a different kind of magic* The con is just as important as the magic* Interesting charactersCons:* The backstory is a bit shallow and you are just dropped right into the world.I love stories where one simple twist, in this case that there are people who can "work" magic, shifts our current world. Holly Black did a great job of placing the magic in our world.There were some places where one or two simply sentences would have illuminated the backstory and only enhanced the present situations, but by the end of the novel I had a good feel for the characters and the world.
