About the Author
Praise For a la Carte…
“Davis’s debut offering is as delightful and fulfilling as the handwritten recipes in progress included at the end of each chapter.”—Kirkus Reviews
"A book with a lot of heart. Readers will relate to Lainey, who doesn't always say the right thing, who has a love-hate relationship with her mother, and who finds her dreams realized at the novel's end." —School Library Journal
"Davis's first novel shows much promise for good things to come. Too few novels feature well-drawn, well-educated, middle-class African American characters like Lainey and her family." —Booklist
