Caddy has a knack for baking cakes especially for certain people, even if she doesn’t know them; her knack is, as everyone calls it, a Talent. In this fantasy world, almost everyone has a special Talent and some are normal, some unique. Caddy has to bake a cake for the annual baking contest that she has one five years in a row.

I couldn’t really get into this book, but here’s how it goes. Domenica is in a family where they have to move every six months because their father changes jobs often. But then, Her aunt and uncle come to bring her to Switzerland to go to an American school where her uncle is headmaster. Domenica has her ups and downs in this story.

I wouldn’t really recommend this book to people that can’t get into sappy books. If you like pretty cheesy books about moving, this would be your book.
