About this ebook

When Ellie is dumped by her boyfriend, she's forced to make new friends (while watching her ex swoon over his new girlfriend) in The Secret Recipe for Moving On, a smart and funny YA debut from Karen Bischer.

Ellie Agresti's not sure anything could be worse than being dumped by her boyfriend, Hunter, the first day of senior year.

But sharing a "life skills" class with him and his new girlfriend, Brynn? AND getting partnered with a "family" of misfits (A.J., the loudmouth; Isaiah, the horse-racing obsessive; and Luke, the tattooed stunt-biker)?

It's a recipe for certain disaster...until an in-class competition allows Ellie to channel her angst into beating Hunter and Brynn's team, and she unexpectedly bonds with her own group–especially Luke–in the process.

But as Ellie soon discovers, it will take more than classroom triumphs to heal her broken heart–and find herself again.

New to me author and I really enjoyed this book. It’s pure YA but don’t get me wrong Pearl Clutcher’s it’s not exactly a total clean read so watch out. There is some light swearing, some kissing, some sex talk but no actual nitty gritty, some under age drinking, and of course all the bullying. I mean, it wouldn’t be high school otherwise, right?! Overall great book about high school drama, down and out underdogs, and finding your true self.
