Cady Bennett is the child of a widower who is suddenly incarcerated, causing the system to place 12 year old Cady into the care of her aunt, her mother’s sister Michelle. Up to this point, Cady’s father’s addictions and bizarre religious beliefs have meant that Cady has spent the majority of her life either homeless or living in seedy motels.

All this changes drastically as Cady lives with her aunt and her aunt’s partner Suzanne. Cady meets and becomes fast friends with a family of illegal immigrants who are basically being sheltered by Michelle. Cady also becomes proficient at baking pies, as her aunt teaches her baking skills. She gains calmness from the very act of baking.

Wrenchingly timely, this beautiful book (dedicated “to DREAMers everywhere”) is a richly textured feel-good read. Yes, it’s classified as Juvenile Fiction, but trust me, look beyond that.
