Everyone’s excited for the school’s annual harvest charity fair! Well, everyone except Crimson. The fair just happens to fall right on her thirteenth birthday—and knowing that she won’t be eating the special birthday pie that her mom, Old Mill’s most famous baker, had always planned to bake makes Crimson’s special day one she’d rather forget than celebrate. Scarlett, set on yanking Crimson out of her birthday boycott, surprises Crimson with a recipe for remembering her mom and celebrating her big day—birthday batter and all! But instead of cheering her up, the idea drives Crimson to explode in anger, and Scarlett is left wondering where she went wrong. In this heartfelt story, Scarlett and Crimson learn that it takes a lot to make the perfect friendship—and that sometimes the most secret of ingredients is the most important!
