Dear Julia by Amy Zemser
Elaine has been practicing her French cooking since early childhood. Now 16 she is a master chef just like her role model Julia Child. But her mother, a strong feminist congresswoman, will not accept that her daughter would spend her life slaving away in a kitchen just like women in the past did. Elaine meets Lucida whose life's ambition is to become famous in any way possible. Unfortunately, Lucida doesn't seem to have talent in any field at all. When Lucida hears about a chance to produce a local TV show she decides that they must make a cooking show with Elaine as the star. But when a competitor causes problems for Elaine and Lucida their friendship is tested and they must rely on both of their odd families for support.
