About This Book
From the award-winning author of So B. It, a story about family, friendship, and...pie!
When Alice's Aunt Polly passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous pie-crust recipe. Or does she? In her will, Polly leaves the recipe to her extraordinarily surly cat Lardo...and then leaves Lardo in the care of Alice.
Suddenly Alice is thrust into the center of a piestorm, with everyone in town trying to be the next pie-contest winner...including Alice's mother and some of Alice's friends. The whole community is going pie-crazy...and it's up to Alice to discover the ingredients that really matter. Like family. And friendship. And enjoying what you do.
Praise for Pie
