Staff Review: "The Truth About Twinkie Pie" by The Truth About Twinkie Pie

★★★★★

12-year–old Gigi lives with her sister Didi who is a hairstylist in a trailer park. When Didi wins one million dollars in a cooking contest she is able to help realize the big dreams she has for Gigi by moving to Long Island and enrolling her in an upscale high school. Gigi, who hates her name and asks the new kids at school to call her Leia, becomes friends with Trip, a cool, handsome guy who accepts her as she is. This is a warm, sweet, wonderful tween novel about food, friendship, family and the secrets and love that bind us all together. Scrumptious recipes for Twinkie Pie, Love at First Salad, Impossible Pie, Cherries in the Snow and more are included. You’ll laugh, smile, cry, sigh, and most likely bake.
