Knisley, Lucy. Relish: My Life in the Kitchen. Macmillan Children's Publishing Group, 2013.

This book tells the story of Lucy and her love of gourmet food. Interspersed throughout the memoir are recipes for various items mentioned in the story. Similar to Bechdel's Fun Home, this book is a memoir with no discernible plot or storyline to follow.

The art in this book is appropriate to the story. The story itself is mildly interesting, and the recipes are genuine. (My wife made one of them for dinner last night.) I don't see this book being popular with my junior high patrons, but high school students and new adults would definitely enjoy it.

Recommended for: young adults, adults
Red Flags: none
Overall Rating: 5/5 stars
