Close to Famous
I love cooking, and I love pretending that I am a chef! I was immediately drawn to the cover of Joan Bauer's most recent novel, Close to Famous. I wasn't disappointed. It has a wonderful combination of baking and heartwarming friendships that help the main character, Foster, overcome many fears.
Foster McFee dreams of having her own cooking show one day just like her favorite Food Network Star. For now, she has to settle for baking cupcakes for anyone who will take them. Foster and her mom are running away from their problems in Tennessee, and they run straight to the town of Culpepper where they find friendship, dreams and almost fame.
Happy eating...and reading!
