First Aladdin hardcover edition.
Turning thirteen isn't looking lucky for Liza--and even the kitchen isn't a refuge--in this second book of the Saturday Cooking Club series. Liza's big plans for a small birthday celebration with besties Frankie and Lillian don't stand a chance against a guilt-giving force of nature: her Nana Silver. As the girls attempt to regain control from a grandmother with way-too-grand ideas, they also try to find the right recipes for their own happiness. Frankie decides to remake herself in the image of Lillian's high-achieving, "perfect" sister Katy, while Lillian tackles the puzzle of how to understand boys. And Liza whips up plans to use Nana's extravagant birthday bash to try get her parents back together--despite the obvious simmering between her mom and Chef. Can the girls rise to the occasion and salvage Liza's party without scorched feelings? Or will turning thirteen be far from a piece of cake?
