Sweet story about a young girl who loses someone she loves. Includes a mini-mystery and recipes for pie. I loved that the story focuses on finding your gifts and being true to those gifts and yourself. ( )

This was a really fun, feel good read. I think that both boys and girls would enjoy the storyline of this book but that, in particular, girls could benefit from Alice's strong, independent character. Unlike many books with female lead characters, Alice is the brains of her friendship with Charlie. In addition, the book advocates for finding the value in one's individual gifts, which is a wonderful lesson. ( )

"Thank you very much." Alice was standing beside the bed when her aunt Polly reached a trembling hand out from underneath the leopard-print bedspread (Polly loved leopard print) and pulled the girl close to whisper in her ear.

From the award-winning author of SO B. IT, a story about family, friendship, and...pie!

When Alice's Aunt Polly, the Pie Queen of Ipswitch, passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous pie-crust recipe. Or does she? In her will, Polly leaves the recipe to her extraordinarily fat, remarkably disagreeable cat, Lardo . . . and then leaves Lardo in the care of Alice.

Suddenly, the whole town is wondering how you leave a recipe to a cat. Everyone wants to be the next big pie-contest winner, and it's making them pie-crazy. It's up to Alice and her friend Charlie to put the pieces together and discover the not-so-secret recipe for happiness: Friendship. Family. And the pleasure of donig something for the right reason.

With Pie, acclaimed author Sarah Weeks has baked up a sweet and satisfying delight, as inviting as warm pie on a cold day. You'll enjoy every last bite.
