"Hechtman builds teenage frustration and
helplessness into a story that readers
will relate to from the start."
Cuyahoga County Public Library, OH
"Hechtman's plot is fast-paced and scaled down to a teenager's world. She uses cooking as glue to
hold together an already intriguing plot that involves visits to the Oriental Institute, where
Yvonne's mother works. Hechtman produces a book that is perfect for the 12-15 year old crowd.
She manages to teach, entertain, and make the reader smile."
