Something Called Life (And Cooking)
My nine sisters and I do everything together. From cooking to free time to family adventures, we're always there for each other. As much as I complain about certain members of our family, I love all of my sisters and each one of them has made an impact on my life, both for good and bad. That's life: not everything is going to come up roses. But, as mama says, it is what you make of it. In this family, the Marzani family, we make a lot of food-and also make our lives what they are: a group of sisters pressing on in spite of tragedy and heartache.
I suppose you could call it a Marzani trait.
Emilia Joy Marzani isn't just your average seventeen year-old. She's an older sister to six siblings, a future chef, and a big dreamer. But sometimes life isn't on her side-and neither is her family. Through the ups and downs of her senior year, she learns many lessons about life, family, friends, boys, and most importantly, encouraging her sisters to follow what they want to do most in life-even if it doesn't involve learning how to make eclairs and truffles.
