Evie is 13 years old and lives with her mother. Her father, a celebrity chef, lives with his new wife and they are expecting twins. Dad also has "custody" of their dog, Mousse, and Evie misses the dog as much as she misses her dad. Evie takes a cooking class so she can talk about it with her dad and meets Corey, her cute cooking partner. Corey gives her funny feelings the likes of which she has never felt before! Mix in a rather free-spirited cooking teacher (who also happens to be Corey's aunt) and a cranky neighbor that Evie develops a relationship with and you have a recipe for a truly enjoyable book!

Eggs Over Evie explores the many issues teens today often have to deal with, and Evie handles those issues with intelligence and aplomb. It also includes several great sounding recipes, some helpful kitchen tips, and quotes from famous chefs like Ina Garten, Mario Batali, Bobby Flay, and many more.

Happy Reading,
Miss Laurie
