Linda has a good life with her Aunt Elba, who runs a small diner in Arizona, but her aunt's health is bad enough to send Linda off to live with her Aunt Pat in Pittsburgh. Pat also cooking, but instead of the flavorful, fresh Mexican food that Linda likes to cook, Pat favors carb-heavy casseroles from cans, recipes for which she shares on her local cooking show, Cooking From Cans. This is in part because there are a lot of children in the family, including foster child Angel, who is having a har [...]

I think that this is typically found in the Young Adult section, but it was more like a tween novel for me. This story had potential but, for me, failed because of one crucial flaw- the voice of Linda was nowhere young enough to be a 14-year-old. Her character is a fresh-food lover who worked in a restaurant and was a food blogger. That was fine, but she was too self-aware for me to be a true teenager. I liked many elements of the story: a girl displaced from her home, learning to get along with [...]

Fourteen year old Linda Delgado has lived with her aunt Elba for as long as she can remember. Her father is a mystery, her mom deceased. They get by, but barely, thanks to the Mexican restaurant Elba has run for years. When her aunt's health goes bad, Linda is sent to stay with her other aunt Pat in Pittsburgh. Not only is Linda losing everything that's familiar (Arizona, cooking, her school and her best friend Julia), but she goes from just a household comprised of her and Elba to a chaotic one [...]

A sweet, family-focused story. There are a lot of characters, but they're all surprisingly well-drawn. I tended to get infuriated with Linda's foster family, and Linda herself as well - but the mark of a good book, in my opinion, is that it elicits a strong reaction from its readers. (I did yell at the book a couple of times, particularly when Linda was forced to attend a dance in a crappy dress, then left to carry in refreshments by herself, and then had to compete against her foster sister, wh [...]

Sizzle by Lee McClain is a nonfiction novel of drama and cooking. Linda and Aunt Elba live in Arizona and own a little diner. But, Aunt Elba had a mini stroke which is a warning for a stroke. They had to shut down the diner because of Aunt Elba's condition. Linda was unhappy with this situation and so was Aunt Elba but it was the right thing to do. So Linda had to live in Philadelphia with her Aunt Pat who was the host of the show "Cooking from Cans". Aunt Elba had to move with her parents who w [...]

Why I picked it up: It’s food fiction! I love fiction where food plays a series role and like it even more when recipes are included.Fourteen-year old Linda lives in Arizona with her Aunt Elba and the two run an authentic Mexican restaurant with all foods made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Linda loves to cook and has a very sensitive and refined sense of smell. When Aunt Elba gets sick, Linda must go live with her Aunt Pat, who she has never met. Pat has a local show called “Cooking f [...]

Sizzle by Lee McClair follows Linda who is forced to move from her aunts home in New Mexico where she cooks spicy Mexican food on a daily basis to Pittsburgh with her Aunt Pat (the Queen of Cans) and her very large family. Linda must learn to deal with a new school, a new family and somehow try to make her love of cooking work with an Aunt that doesn't use fresh food.I loved reading about Linda, a Hispanic girl living as a foster child and trying to figure out how to navigate a different world.

This is a cute tween/YA book about a fourteen-year-old "foodie" thrust into a canned-chef nightmare. It has some fluffy romance, and deals lightly multicultural and family issues, but unfortunately fewer recipes than I hoped there would be. I know that this book is meant for younger teens, but at under 200 pages, I also wished that the author had gone into more detail on the stories of some of the side characters. Overall, a good read for a middle school audience, whether or not they are interes [...]

I like food fiction, so I enjoyed the food aspects of the book. One concern that I have is the multicultural aspect and whether or not it's accurate. Linda is Latina, her best friend is American Indian (living on the "rez" to boot), and Dino is Italian--and the only thing we really see about them is what they eat--which is stereotypical to their ethnic group. And I don't know, maybe it's accurate, but maybe it's not, and I don't know what the author's qualifications for writing multicultural fic [...]

Linda is happy in Tucson, AZ living with her Aunt Elba and working at her Mexican restaurant. She and her best friend love to cook fresh homemade foods. Linda never expected that her aunt was ill and that she would have to move to Pittsburgh, PA. She moves in with her Aunt Pat who takes in children and is a local celebrity for her cookbooks and TV show Cooking from Cans. Thankfully, or not so thankfully, Linda keeps in touch with her best friend through FABFOODZ, as that is not the only party re [...]

While it was a cute story, as an audiobook the reading of all of the information on Linda's social media page each time she writes on it is a bit obnoxious. It would not be bad in book form as you wouldn't have to read it each time.This is a coming of age story and the characters are likeable enough, though Linda does spend a little much time and effort thinking about guys instead of what she claims to really enjoy.
