KIRKUS REVIEW

Angel’s back! And her breathless first-person narration is as delish as ever. In this sequel to My Cup Runneth Over (2003), Angel’s potty father—Potty—becomes incensed at Harrods for selling poorer haggis than advertised, so he’s off on a one-person protest with clashing tartans and homemade signs. Angel’s hilariously prim Mother, meanwhile, is wrapped in fabric “like a large cashmere chrysalis.” Angel has only the girlies (her ever-loyal best friends) and Flossie the cook for consolation. Oh, and the boy who lives with her. Oh, and the boy from school who likes her. Despite Potty’s arrest and the family’s temporary banishment (gasp!) from Harrods Food Halls, their luxurious lifestyle is never really in danger. As before, Angel’s obsessions with fatness, fashion, and food are funny and fast; this time they’re joined by real sadness when one of the girlies moves away—but she’s back at the end. A batch of laughs sprinkled generously with recipes. (Fiction. 10-14)
