Happy Monday to you from me, the Insatiable Reader...here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers! (Hmm, good place to be with a name like that....) Today we usher in a new week, well it is Monday after all, but more than that, we are making a point to say...Hello world! Did you know a great read was "born" today? Yep, it was! Allow me to introduce you... Okay, so the great read part is my opinion, but it is definitely shared by many folks that have had the privilege of reading this new gem. Today's book of choice celebrating its birthday-type arrival into the literary world is....
Though listed as Middle Grade Fiction, the only thing that keeps it there is the age of the lead characters (they're 12, but they seem far more mature than some adults I know)....the story itself, is perfectly suited to the YA genre and fans of it. Highly recommend this gem of a book if not purely for the fun story for the recipes! That's right! YOU, readers, get to try out some of the recipes Franny uses within the story from the "Make-It-Better Munchie Mix" to the "Sensationally Sexy Smoothie" (a favorite of mine I might add.....although the spinning in a circle and chanting bit in the instructions would definitely turn a few heads if done in public), all to rather delicious ends.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for the ARC for review. (THANKS!)

Until next time....happy reading!
