Just this week I discovered a really cool meme at Jen's blog: So Many Books...So Little Time. She chooses her favorite cover for the week and includes a synopsis for the book. Isn't that great? I think it's a great way to share books with others! I'm going to start posting mine on Friday's, so be sure to come back next week. Enjoy!
This week I've chosen: How Sweet It Is by Alice J. Wisler.
(doesn't that cake look scrumptious!)
Deena Livingston leaves behind a broken romance and her chef job in Atlanta to spend time at her grandfather's cabin in the mountains of North Carolina. But her grandfather has an odd request: he wants Deena to teach cooking classes to the ragtag group of middle-schoolers who attend the local afterschool program, The Center. Reluctantly, Deena agrees, but how is she supposed to convince these kids that cooking at home is better than eating at McDonalds? And after all she went through in Atlanta, why is she attracted to Zack, the social worker at The Center? Can a Dr. Seuss-quoting plumber, a curly-haired basketball player, and a group of middle-schoolers change Deena's outlook on life?
