Twelve year old Isabel Browning loves to travel, although she has never been out of her town Willow, Oregon. But this summer everything might change. When Isabel hears about a baking contest and the finalists get to go to New York City she is dying to enter, but Isabel and her mom don’t exactly agree on the recipe she should enter. In this book Isabel learns that it is not about where you go it is about if you like where you are.
I think this book is good for girls aged 8-11 who are really into baking. It is kid-friendly, fun, and has lots of sweet treats. I do think this book should have a little more excitement. It is basically just telling you of a girl’s everyday life.
The writing is very good and the words and thoughts that flowed from the pen of author Lisa Schroeder made you feel that she was able to truly understand the minds of young ladies. The tight bond of friendship between Isabel and her best bud, Sophie, was perfect, and their personalities played off each other as fresh and natural as they were meant to be.
But two points within the story struck me as really not fitting in and which I would have preferred that they had been taken into another direction. The first and the greater of the two was the underlying current of depression and/or paralyzing fear/pessimism that Isabel's mother seemed to be fighting throughout most of the story. I felt that an otherwise great storyline had been overshadowed by the fact that a young girl had to grow up and mature faster than she needed because of her feeling of needing to mentally care for her mother. It was a bit like mom and daughter changing roles. Perhaps in another book which focused on the subject of this sort, this would have been an appropriate storyline. But for what I thought was a lighthearted and innocent adventure for young Isabel, it turned into more angst in both her trying to work towards her dream yet having to become way too grown up in thought and action, by way of being her mothers caretaker of sorts.Read more ›
