Eggs Over Evie by Alison Jackson
Evie lives with her mother while her father lives across the lake with his new, young wife. Evie's father is a celebrity chef and Evie is trying to follow in his footsteps by taking a cooking class at the rec center. Her teacher seems to be a grown up hippie and her cooking partner seems to take an instant dislike to her. Evie's home life is hard too with her mom beginning to date and her beloved dog living with her father. To top everything off, her new stepmom announces she's pregnant and expecting twins. It's up to Evie to find a way to make all the parts of her life work for her again. This is not a deep book but it is realistic and enjoyable. Each chapter also includes cooking tips and one of Evie's recipes which makes it more fun!
