High school finally behind her, Winnie is all set to attend college in the fall. But first she’s spending her summer days working at her granny’s diner and begins spending her midnights with Dallas—the boy she loves to hate and hates that she likes. Winnie lives in Misty Haven, a small town where secrets are impossible to keep—like when Winnie allegedly snaps on Dr. Skinner, which results in everyone feeling compelled to give her weight loss advice for her own good. Because they care that’s she’s “too fat.”

Winnie dreams of someday inheriting the diner—but it’ll go away if they can’t make money, and fast. Winnie has a solution—win a televised cooking competition and make bank. But Granny doesn’t want her to enter—so Winnie has to find a way around her formidable grandmother. Can she come out on top?

My Complete Review Will Be Posted Soon
But this is what I can share now.

I'm still reading IF IT MAKES YOU HAPPY and can't share my complete review just yet. It took me a while to get into the swing of reading Winnie's story, and now that I have I'm really enjoying it.

There are a lot of people in Winnie's life who she gives a big part of herself to. She has the kind of energy and presence that people want to be a part of. She knows who she is and doesn't mess when people want to tell her otherwise. I really like this about her. It doesn't mean that she has it all figured out, but she's definitely on her way and knows how to communicate that.

This idea of the Misty Haven crowning and a baking show seem like a lot all at once, so I'm interested to find out how one will play in the role of the other.

Once I finish reading IF IT MAKES YOU HAPPY, I'll share my complete review. Check back soon!
