it was amazing

The story starts off with the two best friends Rosie and Bailey getting in a fight. Rosie talks with Granny Torelli all about Bailey and their friendship. While talking, Granny makes soup. Once the fight is over, the two friends bond over the new girl on their street and deciding they do not like her. While making soup, Bailey, Rosie, and grandma discuss past experiences. Jealousy is a huge theme in this story that could be a great lesson for students. Granny is one of those characters who you really feel connected to while reading the story. While the two friends are young and inexperienced, Granny has knowledge and has her own, funny, spin on situations. I think this is an absolutely amazing story. I could not help but think of my own grandma as I read this story. My grandma, like granny, uses random Italian words and also loves to cook. Besides the physical similarities, the emotional qualities are what really reminded me of my nana. They are both such kind, good listeners, and will always know the right thing to say. I definitely recommend this book!
