A DELICIOUS CAKE TALENT
Everyone has a talent. Cady's talent is figuring out what kind of cake is right for a person. Orphaned for what seems like forever, Cady is the only one left at the orphanage until an accident leads her to a special building, an old peanut butter factory, where one person is searching for her talent, another steals talents but where everyone seems to be tangled together somehow. In this fantastical tale by Lisa Graff, A Tangle of Knots, the knots become untangled as Cady finds the family she is meant to be with.
The book includes recipes for each person's special cake. I haven't any of them yet, but you can check out the book and try one out...maybe Miss Mallory's Peach Cake or something more unusual like Zane's Garlic Cake.
For readers in 4th-6th grade.
