This book is about a girl who loooves to bake. Her mom had been dating a man who thought he was Elvis, and when she broke up with him he "chased" them out of there town. They got to a new town called culpepper and she meets lots of new friends and someone who changed her life.

This is one of the best books ive read all year and it really taught me something about following my dreams and trying my hardest. i definetly think this is a girls book. i couldnt put it down!

      It would be a great disappointment if this book isn’t on a BFYA list.     This was one of the best books I have read in a long time! It had the pefect balance between adventure and a dream coming true. I would recommend  this book to anyone in middle school looking for a great fast moving read. The thing that made this book a great book is that the main character never gave up her dream no matter what she was going through.
