Evie's life is complicated. Her parents have divorced. Her father, a TV chef, has met and married a new woman who is about to have a baby. Her mother, a piano teacher, is starting to date again. This leaves Evie in the middle.

Desperate for her father's approval, takes a cooking course at the local community center over the summer. Their she learns about cooking, but also about life and choices. And how to live within this new situation.

What I loved about this book was how real Evie's emotions around divorce were. She still loves her father, but is angry that he left her behind and took the dog. Evie desperately wants his attention, but is terrified about the arrival of a new baby. At the same time, her mother starting to date leaves her feeling that she is about to be abandoned by the only parent she has left.

Children of divorce will see themselves in this book. Parents who are divorcing should read this book too in order to understand what kind of stresses divorce puts on children.

Good book.
