Gingersnap: A tale of family, food and war


 
Oh snap! Patricia Reilly Giff’s got readers covered with another heartfelt novel. This author’s written more than a dozen sweet books for girls!

Gingersnap is the story of Jayna, a smart girl left to her own devices with a sassy landlady when her brother, Rob, is drafted into World War II. Guided by a mysterious ghost-like voice, Jayna finds a box full of all kinds of confusing things. A peacock feather, a recipe book, a baseball glove? She wonders what it could all mean!

In search of a Brooklyn bakery, possible family ties and who knows what else, Jayna follows the ghost’s advice with her pet turtle, Theresa, en tow. But can she claim the people she meets in this Brooklyn neighborhood as her own?

Realistic wartime recipes (check out the “Waiting Soup”) separate the chapters in this short ‘n’ sweet, thoughtful read. If you’re in the mood for some supernatural soul-searching, and ready to cuddle up on the couch with a new book this winter, we recommend Gingersnap—available now!


Is there a recipe your family always shares? Blog about it, babes.
