Sarah Weeks begins her book with this dedication:
"To my faithful readers, because a book is like a pie -- the only thing more satisfying than cooking up the story is knowing that somebody might be out there eating it up with a spoon."
From the award-winning author of SO B. IT, a story about family, friendship, and...pie!
When Alice's Aunt Polly 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 surly cat Lardo . . . and then leaves Lardo in the care of Alice.
Suddenly Alice is thrust into the center of a piestorm, with everyone in town trying to be the next pie-contest winner ... including Alice's mother and some of Alice's friends. The whole community is going pie-crazy . . . and it's up to Alice to discover the ingredients that really matter. Like family. And friendship. And enjoying what you do.
