Meanwhile she misses her late dad who taught her everything she knows about baking. She feels it was her fault he died of a heart attack while getting her more Whoppers for a practice bake. Now she's been invited to return to a junior bake-off contest. Should she do it for her dad? Is she ready? Meanwhile the pains intensify...

It is an adventurous book, and I learned some new things from it. It is about a boy who runs away and lives in a tree that he howled out. He scavenges for food and makes things that are essential for living out of natural things like wood. It is a really good book that my brother and I enjoyed reading.

The Tale of Two Bobbies was a unique true tale that stemmed from a natural disaster. It was heart warming to see how close these two were and how Bobbie was protective of Bobbie due to being blind. A cat with a seeing eye dog is very special.

Though I think she uses too many exclamation points, I love Hattie and think she earns comparisons to Anne Shirley. Both started as just orphan girls and eventually became confident, intrepid women with big dreams.

This story takes place in San Francisco in 1919. Hattie works hard to become a reporter at the Chronicle, facing down sexism, scandal, and her heart tugging her towards Seattle and Charlie. I love that Hattie decides to put her career hopes first instead of just marrying Charlie and settling down as a wife.

Lots of great historical detail (Boeing, postcards, $2.50 for a week at a hotel), a lovable heroine, and a bit of mystery make this a great read.
