Life is complicated for 14-year-old Liv Bloom. Her father walked out when she was young, her mum is in a recovery centre for alcoholics, and her older sister is struggling to take care of the family.
One day, Liv discovers a book of recipes written in her mother's handwriting, and this sets her off on a journey towards self-discovery and reconciliation - all structured around some real cake recipes.
A beautifully told story about what it takes to get through hard times, and the power of family, friendship and baking. Recommended for fans of Sarah Crossan, Eve Ainsworth, and Jandy Nelson.
