Summary
  • Celeste está desconsolada cuando muere su abuela. Pero todo cambia cuando de manera misteriosa ¡le llega una carta de su abuelita! Conforme van llegando más cartas del más allá, cada una con recetas de las comidas favoritas que le preparaba su abuela, Celeste se consuela al aprender a preparar los platillos. Mientras tanto, sin el cheque de seguro social de su abuela, Mami tiene que conseguir un segundo empleo para cubrir todos los gastos. Celeste se ve forzada a dejar sus clases de baile, y una niña odiosa en la escuela se jacta de que reemplazará a Celeste como la estrella del próximo recital. Y por si eso fuera poco, sus amigas creen que se ha vuelto loca. ¡los muertos no pueden enviar cartas! Celeste muy pronto descubre que todas las recetas forman una comida: café con leche, cangrejitos de guayaba y queso, congrí, mariquitas, ropa vieja y flan. ¿Podrá Celeste preparar un festín cubano para celebrar la vida de su querida abuela?
  • Celeste is heartbroken when her grandmother dies. But everything changes when a letter mysteriously comes in the mail, from Grandma! As letters continue to arrive from the beyond, each with a recipe of a favorite food her grandmother used to prepare, Celeste consoles herself by learning how to cook the dishes. Meanwhile, without Grandma's Social Security check, Mami needs to get a second job to make ends meet. Celeste has to quit dance lessons, and a bully at school gloats that she will replace Celeste as the star in the upcoming recital. To top things off, her friends think that she has gone crazy. Dead people can't send letters! Soon Celeste realizes that all the recipes combined make an entire meal: café con leche, guava and cheese croissants, congrí, plantain chips, ropa vieja and flan. Can she really make a Cuban feast to celebrate her cherished grandmother's life?
