ABOUT THE SECRET RECIPE FOR MOVING ON

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. 

OLIVIA’S THOUGHTS ABOUT THE SECRET RECIPE FOR MOVING ON

This was the cutest book. It gives you all the feels. From teenage angst over a break-up, to the giddy thrill of new love, to a bunch of misfits finding friendship. It was a great book and just what I needed on a gloomy day. The last couple chapters I smiled the whole way through.

From the mom of teens perspective, I cringed a bit regarding a few things, but all in all it’s handled pretty well.

Thank you to NetGalley, Karen Bischer and Swoon Reads for letting me read this book. I enjoyed it and leave this review voluntarily.
