Linda Delgado has the best nose in all of
Arizona, for cooking, that is. She may be only fourteen, but Linda loves making
fresh Mexican food with her aunt Elba and blogging about food with her best
friend, Julia. But after Aunt Elba suffers a mini stroke, Linda is catapulted
across the country and into a whole new life. In Pittsburgh, living with bossy
Aunt Pat and her seven kids, Linda feels completely out of place. Aunt Pat
wants Linda’s help with Angel, a young foster child in the family who speaks
only Spanish, but he seems impossible. And Linda’s cousin Chloe treats her like
a total intruder.
Worst of all, Aunt Pat is a local celebrity with
her own television show, Cooking from
Cans, and she won’t let Linda in the kitchen. Linda might go loco if she
doesn’t get some fresh food, like now. Finally Linda gets her chance to sizzle
with a cooking project at school. It’s an added bonus that
cute-guy-with-a-secret Dino Moretti (who even smells delicious) is in her
group. But when jealous Chloe joins the group, Linda’s new life heats up fast.
In the end, it’s up to Linda to decide what kind of cook, and person, she truly
wants to be. Download and start listening now!
