”Pie” by Sarah Weeks

In the book PIE by Sarah Weeks,I like how Sarah Weeks showed how good the pies were, instead of saying she put the crust on the pie and there were other pies she wrote ‘’with golden top crusts spread like quilts over the sweet warm fillings,and cream pies galore-chocolate,coconut and banana.And instead of writing Alice felt good she wrote ‘’Alice felt all warm and gooey inside,like one of her Aunt Polly’s pies.’’ She wanted to stay there in the pie shop forever.’’ I like how she wrote a comparison of a pie and Alice’s feelings.


The lesson of the story is that you should always be happy about your gift.In the story Alice had a talent at making songs and having an active imagination but her mom was not happy of her own daughter’s talent so Alice tried not to sing or use her imagination.She became sick.And Ruth wanted to have the talent of making pies she did not take that she had the talent of having the voice of an angel.Because of that she turned selfish and she did not love her daughter but then she changed and Ruth and Alice started to have a connection together as they made a commercial Alice made up the song and Ruth sang the song Alice made.


This story is like Tiger risin. It starts with no connection with their  parents[ as Alice’s mom did not have a strong connection with Alice  and Rob did not have a strong connection with his dad .Charlie in Pie in first chapters sounded mean and dumb with dirty fingernails and Sistine in Tiger rising sounded mean and nasty because she sticked her tongue out at Rob.But it turns out they become quite important in the book.
