TODAY'S BOOK GIVEAWAY
Leaving behind a broken romance and her job as a chef in Atlanta, Deena Livingston reluctantly agrees to teach cooking to middle schoolers in North Carolina. But how can she convince the kids that home cooking is better than fast food? Will a Dr. Seuss-quoting plumber, a handsome social worker, and eight rambunctious youngsters change Deena's outlook on life? 320 pages, softcover from Bethany.
I really enjoyed this book. Deena is a likeable and realistic person who has flaws and fears to overcome. I really enjoyed the "supporting" characters and all the lessons that their influence brings to Deen's life. Even includes a few yummy-looking recipes!
