A Long Line of Cakes

We rated this book:


The Cake family are itinerant bakers — moving from one place to another so often they can hardly remember where they’ve been. When their beat-up van pulls into Halleluia, Mississippi, five Cake boys, four Cake dogs, and Emma tumble out the back and help their parents unload their lives and set up housekeeping in their new, but temporary, home. Emma mourns the fact she has left yet another best friend behind and has no friends in this new place. Is it really worth making a new friend if she will only have to soon leave her behind? Her brothers find a baseball field and suddenly have new friends, but Emma is more wary. If she thought they could finally settle down and stay, she would love to have a friend, but can they? Just this once?

Author Deborah Wiles has written a heartwarming story that adds to her popular Aurora County series. Wiles seems to know a thing or two about how difficult it can be to navigate a new place and build and keep friendships intact and being part of a strange and wonderful family. Her writing is snappy and filled with warm humor. This is a winner.
