Pie by Sarah Weeks, was a great book to read and was very interesting. You never know the out come until the end. I also thought that it was very well written. I think that you should read pie if you like a mystery that is not scary and a book that you never know what will happen. So over all I think that Pie was a great book and I enjoyed reading it.

This is a wonderful story filled with mystery, friendship, family, and (you guessed it) pie. I really liked how this book included recipes of different pies at the beginning of each chapter. I think this is creative and unique. Furthermore the book sometimes had a few small quatrain poems (short poems that have a rhyming scheme: ABAB or ABCB). This book shows you the importance of friends and family. I really hope that you will like reading this book as much as I did!

This book was really great! I have probably read it 2 to 3 times and each time I always get captivated into the world in this book. It is a mystery book, but also talks about pie and cats which made it even better!
Really great book and I recommend!
