    When seventeen-year old Lila falls apart following significant tragedies in her life, her family sends her on a little sabbatical away from Miami, to stay with a relative in Winchester, England for the summer. At first, it's the last thing Lila wants; after all, she and her sister are supposed to inherit the family bakery, and she loves nothing more than to make delicious food and feed people. Things in Winchester fall into place as she meets new friends and pours her heart into the kitchen at her family's inn. The heart-wrenching grief Lila feels for her recently deceased abuela and subsequent loss of two important relationships comes in waves throughout the story, striking suddenly then ebbing as Lila discovers new and healthy ways to cope. Anyone who has lost a loved one knows exactly how it feels, and Namey conveys it perfectly. This book has it all: the recipe for new, lasting, happy friendships, a dash of romance, and some gentle (albeit hard) lessons about honoring yourself and letting go of people as perspectives shift. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
