Breakfast Served Anytime

By Sarah Combs

“Beautifully drawn characters populate this affecting first novel, each of them real enough to be hug-worthy. . . . There is much to be savored in this book for those who want a story about real life and real friendship.” — Booklist

When Gloria sets out to spend the summer before her senior year at “geek camp,” she doesn’t know quite what to expect. She resolves to make the best of her new circumstances, but some things are proving more challenging than she expected. Like the mysterious clues left by a certain Professor X before he even shows up to teach his class. Or the sweet but conservative roommate whose coal-industry family champions mountaintop removal. Not to mention the obnoxious Mason, who immediately gets on Gloria’s nerves — but somehow won’t leave her thoughts. Beautifully told by debut author Sarah Combs, this honest and touching story of growing up is imbued with the serene atmosphere of the Kentucky landscape.

  • Now in paperback, a perfect summer read for boys and girls alike, particularly those with an interest in literature, creative writing, and the arts.
  • Eloquently tackles prominent issues particular to Appalachia and Kentucky such as mountain top removal, environmental protection, and economic class division.
  • A debut novel featuring an utterly true-to-life and heart-felt teen perspective and a wholly original voice that grapples with difficult coming-of-age issues with sensitivity and beautiful prose.
