From the winner of the Milkweed Prize for Children’s Literature comes the sequel to Discovering Pig Magic, a charming novel about friendship, food, and surviving the last year of middle school.

Fourteen-year-old Ariel is the head chef in her family’s kitchen. Cucumber salads, fettucine carbonara, fish tacos, and peanut butter pie are just a few of the dishes she crafts when she’s feeling frustrated by the world, and it’s turning into a frustrating year. Ariel, Nicki, and M have been inseparable friends since they were kids, but now M’s mom has decided to move away. It’s the girls’ last year in middle school, and they can’t fathom being separated.

The friends concoct a plan that will keep M in the Bay Area—she’ll move in with Ariel and her family. But before you can say “bff,” the party is over. Everything M does gets on Ariel’s nerves, and it’s not long before the girls are avoiding each other. This was supposed to be their best year ever, but some painful lessons are threatening to tear their friendship apart. Can the girls scramble to make things right before the bond crumbles?
