Publisher's summary

Grace Coulter has been hiding in the kitchen of her family restaurant since she was eight years old. That's when the name-calling began. Stretch, skinny-minny, boy in girl's clothes, all because of the slender height that had her towering over even the tallest boys in the class.

Now, nearly thirty years later, Grace is head chef of the failing restaurant and still hiding in the kitchen. Like many businesses during the current recession, Coulter's may have to start laying off employees or even close. But Grace has a plan to save the restaurant and the people she's known all her life; a plan that will force her to go out into the world and face her fears.

A Slice of Life

What made the experience of listening to A Slice of Life the most enjoyable?

Hank the bus driver was my favorite character because he seemed to be such a nice guy.

What aspect of Gail Shalan’s performance would you have changed?

Although Gail Shalan's narration was okay, I didn't particularly like her voice.
