I finished reading this book in 2 days, and let met tell you... it was AMAZING! This is definitely a must read, especially if you are a coffee or espresso lover. Also if you are a barista like 17-year-old Jane Turner, this might be a book that would interest you. So like I said, this is a MUST read. It's not a very long read but it's a fantastic one! Please please read it. Although this doesn't mean that just anyone will like it, I was simply searching the shelves at my local library in the Teen Fiction section and I found this book, read the summary and checked it out and really enjoyed it in the end! Don't judge a book by its cover. At least read through the first 5-7 chapters so you can get a feel of what your reading, and if you like it, KEEP ON READING! Hope you like it as much as I did. :)

17-year-old barista Jane Turner likes to keep things interesting at Wired Joe’s. Lately, she’s been keeping a notebook of coffee drinks and the customers who choose them. It’s almost a psychology sort of thing, and Jane refers to her new “study” as espressology.Espressology becomes more than a pasttime when Jane uses it to match one customer with another. Suddenly, there’s more to this espressology than she thought!If you’d like a little love with your latte, spend an hour or two reading The Espressologist. It’s a frothy good read!

A whimsical, engaging, interesting type of book. Recommend it to anyone that loves a book or coffee. The Espressologist is an amazing book to snuggle with on a cold winter night...with the hot drink of your choice.

Sexual Content: Also some kissing (which isn't the end of the world, but some parents try to be careful about what their children read, hear, or see. And yes, it is lip to lip.

Coarse Language: There is some inappropriate language used in this amazing novel such as the B word and the C word. So to conclude, younger readers should ask for parental permission before reading this, or save it for when they are older.

High school senior Jane Turner works part-time at a Chicago coffeehouse with her friend Em. She begins to notice that people order drinks that fit their personality, and soon she has created a notebook of entries for nearly all coffee orders. On a whim, she begins matching drinks, and therefore couples, together, and the matches are a hit. But when her competitive boss finds out, he decides to use Jane's matchmaker talents to rev up business, causing confusion in her personal life. This debut is compulsively readable in spite of a predictable plotline and dialogue that is contrived at times. Springer has created a lovable, naive young woman in Jane, and even those who don't drink java will enjoy the frothy story.—Melissa Moore, Union University
