My feelings:

Penelope Spaulding just can't catch a break. Between long hours at the family pizza shop, piles of homework, and her dad’s new obsession—getting the restaurant on a new foodie reality show—it's hard to find a spare moment to breathe. But when she laces up her skates and steps on the ice, the world is hers to control and everything else slips away. When the bad boy who lives down the street dares her to join the Rink Rats, the local misfit hockey team, she surprises herself and joins in silent defiance of everything her parents have forbidden. The more she plays, the easier it is to keep lying, and soon Pen finds it impossible to come clean. She’s sneaking out to practice—and loving every minute of it. It doesn’t take long for her to fall in love with hockey…but she’s not entirely sure if it’s the game she’s falling for or the boy. Because it can’t last. As soon as her dad finds out, she’ll be benched. For good. And the one thing she IS sure of...she can't stop playing.

My Review:
Any Way You Slice It was a fun and adorable read. 

Penelope (love the name) is hard-working, caring and very loyal to her family's restaurant. But, she has a different passion and unfortunately her dad doesn't like what she loves to do. I liked Penelope a lot. She doesn't let anyone, even her dad get in her way. She's very determined. I also really loved Jake! He's very caring and such a great friend to Penelope. 

The plot is really fun to read. The romance is cute, nothing to deep here and that's okay. Sometimes I don't need those deep love connections. The romance between Penelope and Jake was just adorable! 

After reading Any Way You Slice It, you will want to eat pizza! So you're warned, get a slice!  
I recommend Any Way You Slice It for anyone who from time to time needs a simple, but fun and adorable story to read.
