Eleven-year-old Cara has lost her mother and younger sister in a house fire, and her father has withdrawn into grief and despair. She finds comfort in restarting her mother’s home baking business, “Julia’s Kitchen,” and in her Jewish beliefs. This book is outstandingly written with an upbeat tone despite the sadness of the plot.
