A Young Girl's Determination
Anaji bakes with her grandma, Deema creating delicacies for Island Spice¿s best customers to taste. She shares her recipes with Chef Nyla, her cooking instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education. Chef Nyla gives her the chance to fulfill her dream of becoming a Food Network Star, when she hands her a paper about a new show, Super Chef Kids. Her best friend, Linc, helps her with the entrance video, where she makes Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. When she is accepted for the New York area regional competition, she is overwhelmed. Deema accompanies her to the first round where she creates Shrimp Burger Pitas. Even with a few minor setbacks and her struggle with time management she still ends up on top. Her father pushes her to study for the Stuyvesant Exam, but Anaji has another idea, when she finds out the competition is on the same day. When she decides to follow her dream, will she pay for her disloyalty or does she have what it takes to be the chef on Super Chef Kids. Ramin Ganeshram grew up with a Trinidad father and took the Stuyvesant exam just like Anaji might in this book.
The book Stir it Up! is full of suspense and determination. Anaji is devoted to cooking and her determination to compete shows this. Dishonoring her father, Anaji show her passion to cook and be the best she possibly can and to show it too. Even with her mother paying little attention to her, in order to receive her nursing degree, will Anaji have what it takes? Anaji is determined to achieve her
goal. There is much suspense in this novel because every little thing that does not turn out the way Anaji wanted it to, puts Anaji a little father back from her goal.
Anaji¿s determination drives her to do unexpected things and hopefully will allow her to achieve he goal. Naji entered the contest because of her strong passion. Would she ever of thought she would have to make a decision like the one she faces. Does Anaji be a good girl and do what her father says or will she follow her dream to become a world famous chef? Will Anaji¿s dream and passion bring her to lie and suffer the consequences or will she accomplish her dream and become a Food Network Star?
Anaji, a Trinidad girl, has the greatest passion in the world. But, will her dream bring her to do something dishonest. Will Anaji¿s will bring her to do something she might regret and destroy her father¿s goal for her happiness. An amazing hobby and passion brings out the worst in people in order to follow their dreams. This is a great book for anyone who loves to cook, or who is interesting in learning about cultures from around the world. It is a wonderful read for kid of all ages.
