The Thing about Leftovers by C.C. Payne
Hi, my name is Cora. I love to read and play sports, especially soccer. I also love to read and also play with my cats, Vanilla and Bean. My favorite color is blue.
The Thing About Leftovers is a wonderful heartwarming story written by C.C Payne. There is a lot of humor and also hope in this story. The Thing About Leftovers is about an 11-year-old girl named Fizzy. All Fizzy wants is to be perfect and to follow her passion of winning the southern living cook-off but things don’t turn out as planned. Fizzy’s dad remarries and he and his new wife eventually have a baby. Meanwhile, her Mom falls in love with a neat freak man and also eventually gets married. The baby and stepdad seem to take over her world and life. Fizzy feels like a leftover and what’s to like about leftovers?.
Confusion and anger take Fizzy over and she has no idea where to turn to. Her mom and stepdad? No, He’ll just kick her out of the house. Her birth father and Suzanne? No way, they are way too busy taking care of the new baby and are too busy to deal with Fizzy- the leftover. Counting on her new friends to help Fizzy starts to realize what is really important and that there are some things you can’t control. You can just control how you deal with it. I definitely recommend this book and hope you find it as good of a read as I did.
