I decided to read this book because the teacher recommended it to me. I learnt that what the teacher might like i might find unbearable. I did not find any of the characters interesting because i was too busy being bored to find them interesting.

The ending was disappointing, and it was mostly a theory about how fast food companies are secretly going take over the world okay so I'm exaggerating but you get the point and it often made consumerism out to be really bad and such which isn't always true.
Anyway the whole story, as well as the apparently unnecessary swearing, just kinda irritated me. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

I kept looking for fried green tomatoes everywhere we went. The reason I say "ostensibly Southern" is that, it turns out, fried green tomatoes may have been as unusual in the South before as they were everywhere else. A standout novel featuring the debut of Clare Knighton along with veteran writer for teens, Bernard Beckett. Artemis Fowl. Retrieved Log into your account. Smithsonian Channel.
Madeline takes off on horseback for parts unknown. And he has nothing at all to say about the wonders of fried chicken. Not one word.
Off-screen, the two engage in some tame, s-style petting, then decide to get married following a half-assed conflict that arises when Madeline learns her love interest is actually rich the horror. Colonel Harland Sanders, founder and spokesperson for a multinational restaurant franchise, would burn his fried chicken empire to the ground for a girl he met a couple weeks ago, and this is presented as a good thing for the KFC brand. Not surprisingly, Tender Wings of Desire is no longer available on Amazon.
And corporate marketing department directors — the only ones who could refuse such a ludicrous order — are a notoriously spineless breed of yea-sayers. Social media public relations cross-promotional opportunities!
Key consumer demographic outreach! Then fearsome reality set in. To edit and layout a book, upload it to Amazon, and execute massive coordinated PR and ad campaigns in such a short timeframe would be madness for any book publisher. What do they know about book publishing?
Meetings are called.

Two teens dare to take on a multi-national corporation in this YA thriller novel by award-winning writer Bernard verrumemill.cf Fried is a fascinating mixture of.
A funny title is settled on. Some junior-level graphic designer is conscripted to create the cover, with zero information about the plot of the still nonexistent romance novel. And even an ad agency has its limits when it comes to insane deadlines. So, what I think happened is one of the marketing directors the one with slightly more spine and heaps more gumption than the others probably sent out a frantic internal email to all KFC corporate staff asking if anyone — ANYONE — had an unpublished romance novel kicking around.
And lo and behold, some mousy administrative assistant or girlfriend of a friend of the cousin of the social media manager coughed up this thing. Possibly it was a fan fiction.
Which begged the question: If they were finding and replacing already, why not change the British setting to Kentucky? Harland Sanders was born in in Indiana. He dropped out of school in the seventh grade to work and eventually moved to Kentucky, where he opened a restaurant in that operated out of a gas station.
He started selling restaurant franchises around the country. By the time he died in , there were nearly 6, KFCs in 55 countries around the world. Between cooking birds, appearing in manic post-hippie-era TV commercials , and keeping his snow-white plantation owner suit neatly pressed, how did he find the time to rise up the ranks of the U.
Army and become a colonel, you ask? You have to be noteworthy to be a Kentucky colonel. Fred Astaire was a Kentucky colonel. So was Ronald Reagan, and Winston Churchill, of all people.
Nowadays, the Kentucky colonels are still going strong. Which brings us to the biggest mystery of Tender Wings of Desire. Exactly what time period is it supposed to take place in? Clues from the setting and dialogue could convince the discerning reader that it could be any era between the Regency and shortly before World War I. Better for our Kentucky Fried Hero to pitch woo in England.
The British, for their part, had abolished slavery by America still had decades to go. An ad agency was involved.
