Love, Chickens, and a Taste of Peculiar Cake

Love, Chickens, and a Taste of Peculiar Cake By: Joyce Magnin

Wilma Sue is headed to her third foster home. She is nervous and sad because she knows that the other families did not want her.  As she pulls up to the house that she is to live in with two sisters, Ruth and Naomi, she doesn't know if she will like it there.   Ruth and Naomi are very nice, and Wilma Sue knows that something is going on in the house, she finds a goldfish in her lemonade and black birds fly out of the cake.  But as Wilma Sue gets to know these ladies, she realizes that she just may belong here.

I loved this book. I thought it was a perfect book about how a foster child might feel, and shows that there is hope that they will find a family that loves them.  The mysteries in the book that Wilma Sue is trying to figure out, what is so special about those cakes, also make this a fun read.  Perfect for fourth or fifth grade readers and up.

I borrowed this from the public library
ISBN: 978-0-310-73333-1
