Trip takes her under his wing and for the first time in her life, Gigi has friends. When Gigi discovers the truth about a family secret, it could tear the sisters apart.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. There were lots of emotional moments between the two sisters - especially as they started to add new people into the lives.  I liked watching Gigi start to gain friends for the first time. I loved how Gigi related choices in life to cooking and recipes her sister makes from memories of their motherThis story tugged at my heart strings.
