Tell Me About It
Ariel is the head chef in her family kitchen. Cucumber salads, fettuccine carbonara, fish tacos, and peanut butter pie are just a few of the dishes she crafts when she’s feeling frustrated by the world. And it’s turning into a frustrating year. Ariel, Nicki, and Mattie have been inseparable friends since they were little kids, but now Mattie’s mom has decided to move away. It’s the girls’ last year in middle school, and they can’t fathom being separated. The friends concoct a plan that will keep Mattie in the Bay area — she’ll move in with Ariel and her family. But before you can say "bff," the party is over. Everything Mattie does gets on Ariel’s nerves, and it’s not long before the girls are avoiding each other. This was supposed to be their best year ever, but some painful lessons are threatening to tear their friendship apart. Can the girls scramble to make things right before the bond crumbles?
My Thoughts
I have had this for a while waiting to be read and have only just read it.

I really like how the books starts, an earthquake, and how the author describes how people feel and what is happening around them, and how the earthquake feels like its the start of a chain reaction for the upcoming weeks.

The book moves at a steady pace, adding relevant information to help the story along seamlessly whether it be back story or information about the main characters themselves.

The book follows the friendship of 3 girls, and the trials that follow them, from moving home to secrets kept hidden away.

Between each chapter a recipie has been added for whatever food is being made or talked about, and I am tempted to try some of them out myself.

This is a quick but fun read which everyone should try.
