Reviews for Chop Shtick
Refreshing. Breezy. Humorous. Just several qualities to describe Sandra Yuen MacKay's enjoyable Chop Shtick. The added mystery and suspense, skillfully interwoven with youthful teamwork and edgy camaraderie, take the storyline to its unexpected yet satisfying conclusion. In relating the protagonist's journey to self-discovery, the author also includes a subtext dealing with schizophrenia and presents its often misunderstood condition and symptoms in a new light. The witty asides and clever turns of phrases punctuated throughout the novel are delightful, and if readers don't laugh out loud, they just ain't got a functioning sense of humor. BTW, Hollywood execs should seriously be considering this as a future money-making project for later this year.
