Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally
Sourcebooks Fire, 2013
As main character Savannah observes a wealthy girl’s birthday party:
I salivate when I see the chocolate fountain. The other half of the tent — the side for adults — is elegant, with silk gold tablecloths, succulent flower arrangements, and a champagne fountain. Good god, how many food fountains do these people have? Is there a ranch dressing fountain? Where’s the Diet Coke fountain?
And later, encountering the hot boy she likes:
He looks yummier than a ranch dressing fountain.
And now I’m stuck with the image of a ranch dressing fountain in my head! Yum, pass the carrots!
