Dorrie Meyers is starting fifth grade, the year of the Sweet Semester baking and

essay contest at school. Dorrie is determined to win, but her cakes fall flat,

her cookies look like pancakes, and she learns the hard way that chocolate-covered

gum is NOT a good idea.

Then Dorrie meets her cousin Victor for the first time. Victor is an immigrant

from Europe, and he is about to teach Dorrie that a loving family and a safe

homeland are the sweetest things of all. With some top-secret tips from Victor's

family's bakery and a big slice of confidence, Dorrie Meyers might just have the

yummiest year of her life.
