It’s 1944, and World War II is raging. Jayna’s big brother Rob is her only family. When Rob is called to duty on a destroyer, Jayna is left in their small town in upstate New York with their cranky landlady. But right before he leaves, Rob tells Jayna a secret: they may have a grandmother in Brooklyn. Rob found a little blue recipe book with her name and an address for a bakery.

When Jayna learns Rob is missing in action, she’s devastated. Along with her turtle Theresa, the recipe book, and an encouraging, ghostly voice as her guide, Jayna sets out for Brooklyn in hopes of finding the family she so desperately needs.

    " I really would have liked a little more background on the voice Jayna hears that propels her forward on her life-defining journey. "

    " I had a hard time fitting the ghost into the story. I undertand that the ghost had a role to play in Jayna's life. It just felt a little disjointed for the ghost to appear without much warning. Still, a nice story about family, loss of parents, and looking for a place to call home. "

    " Read for fourth grade book club. I don't know if this was just TOO young for me, but I really didn't quite get the point - NOTHING new or fresh, in my opinion. "

    " This a cute little story. I'm glad I chose to listen to it on my iPod it might have gotten a bit long in the middle. Over all I thought it a good work by Giff "
