16-year-old Kara is on course to be a superb professional baker. Perfectly designed and piped, her cookies are masterpieces, but also her route out of the rainy streets of Seattle. Winning a prestigious culinary contest could take her away from the misery that is her home life since her widely hated big sister Kellen drowned. Now Kara’s dad is gone, her mom has turned from high-powered attorney into nutty holy-rolling Christian fundamentalist who sells Soul Soup in the family café, and Kara is left with memories of better times.
As Kara pieces together the events that led to Kellen’s death, she starts seeing her out of the corner of her eye: an unwelcome ghost in dirty Ugg boots. And then there are the notes. Someone is watching her, knows exactly where she is and what’s she’s doing. If she doesn’t figure out who her stalker is, she could lose everything. Her chance of escape. The boy she’s beginning to love and trust. And even her life.
