When Nixie's mom gets a new job and doesn't work from home anymore, Nixie and her best friend are separated after school. Grace's mother makes arrangements for Grace to go home with Elyse in the afternoons, while Nixie's parents sign her up for a cooking club that meets in the school cafeteria. The problem is that Nixie doesn't want to have fun and make new friends in the cooking club - she wants to be with Grace!
Dealing with changes in routine and the fear of losing your best friend are something that all kids deal with at some time. Nixie's reactions and her grudging involvement and affection for the other cooking club members all ring true, as do the actions of Grace, Elyse, and Nixie's parents.
Good for fans of realistic fiction series such as Katie Woo or Jasmine Toguchi.
I read an ARC provided by the publisher for review purposes.
