The Truth About Twinkie Pie

The Truth About Twinkie Pie

There’s something about asking for Impossible Things. For one little second, they feel Possible.

Take two sisters making it on their own: brainy twelve-year-old GiGi and junior-high-dropout-turned-hairstylist DiDi. Add a million dollars in prize money from a national cooking contest and a move from the trailer parks of South Carolina to the North Shore of Long Island. Mix in a fancy new school, new friends and enemies, a first crush, and a generous sprinkling of family secrets.

That’s the recipe for The Truth About Twinkie Pie, a voice-driven middle-grade debut about the true meaning of family and friendship.

Praise

*"Yeh's characters are full of heart and she perfectly captures the middle school parent-child dynamic."
Library Media Connection (starred review)
"The bouncy voice of protagonist Gigi--aka Galileo Galilei, aka Leia--makes her tale of a move, friendship, crushes, and a mystery about her identity a very easy one to get caught up in."
Booklist
"Filled with enough characters and plot for two novels, Yeh's nimbly voiced, combination fish-out-of-water, personal transformation and emotional family tale is also stuffed with charm."
Kirkus Reviews
"This story will tug at your heart strings and make you hungry at the same time."
VOYA
"Endearing characters will keep readers engaged throughout as more than one character learns the true meaning of family and friendship."
