JUST SAY IT LIKE IT IS
Just say it like it is is GiGi's motto.
In life, there's always the unexpected events and the secrets that keep people from saying it like it is. these things make a person think of the what ifs.
What if there are secrets that you don't know about?
What if she made a new friend?
What if the mean girl is not mean anymore?
What if your Mama is not who you thought she was?
What if someone lies to you?
Tucked between a collection of recipes from her mom is the search for new beginnings, old secrets and a world turned upside down. The Truth About Twinkie Pie by Kat Yeh is a great realistic and angst ridden story for readers in 6th-8th grades.
There's teen pregnancy, gay best friend, adoption and rebellious children.
