I'm bringing everyone another review from our teen book bloggers. Enjoy!
Reviewer Name: K from 9th grade
Author: Jeanne Ray
Month/Year of Publication: 2003
Do you like to bake? If so Eat Cake by Jeanne Ray is definitely a book for you! When her husband, Sam, loses his job, Ruth isn't sure what to do. So, when Sam says he wants to discover himself and isn't ready to find a new job just yet, Ruth realizes that she must take matters into her own hands. She decides to bake cakes and sell them in an attempt to save her family from going bankrupt. Can she pull it off, or will her business fall flat? This book was very relate able for me. I have a passion for baking and it made me feel like I'm not alone. The characters are very realistic. For example, Ruth's daughter, Camile reminded me of a typical teenager. She tried to weasel her way out of things, threw a hissy fit, and pushed her mother to her limits.
