Publisher's Summary

Angela's Diner has the reputation of a safe haven where patrons find a moment of peace as they linger over coffee and tears. For one young runaway, Angela's is more than a place to tell your tale - it's a place where with the magic of chicken and waffles, and a little bit of trust, may just save your life.

Gabriella Santiago used to be a typical teenager who enjoyed the usual teenage things. That is until a single tragic day ended who she was and within hours she ran from home, never to look back.

Only when Gabby is cold, hungry and at her lowest, does she find Angela's Diner. Gabby embraces her new life and the family she has found in the midst of strangers and obscurity.

Acceptance is what she craves, but before long, Gabby realizes she's not the only one in the diner with something to hide. Her new family has a secret too, and some secrets refuse to stay buried.

    Story
    "Silly, Juvenile and Ridiculous"
    What would have made An Order of Coffee and Tears better?

    The writing was juvenile, overly dramatic and repetitive. The premise for Gabby running away at 16 is far-fetched and being found in Philadelphia by the parents of her first love from Texas out of the blue? She seemed virtually unscathed after being a runaway for so long. Nothing in this story was at all believable.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She couldn't decide who had an accent and who didn't. Poorly done. She attempts to portray a character who stutters and does a horrible job of it. Very grating narration.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I spent most of the time rolling my eyes at the story, the writing and the characters, or should I say caricatures. They had no substance.
