Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This fresh new tween series from Simon Spotlight features a group of four unique girls who are trying their best to navigate through the wild terrain that is middle school. They accidentally form the Cupcake Club, and with friends and frosting, fun ensues. Told from the perspective of one girl for each book, tween readers will relate to the character’s search to fit in and feel comfortable in her own skin.

In The Cupcake Cure, Katie Brown is miserable when her best friend is invited to join the Popular Girls Club and Katie is left out. Is there an Unpopular Girls Club she can join? Luckily, Katie finds her way with a great new group of friends—Mia, Emma, and Alexis—and together they form the Cupcake Club. Sometimes starting from scratch turns out to be the icing on the cupcake.

In In the Mix, Mia has never had a problem making friends—her motto is “more friends mean more fun!” However, not everyone at Park Street school believes in mixing in with different groups of friends. So when the members of the Popular Girls Club take an interest in Mia’s keen fashion sense and decide to recruit her for their club, Mia feels the pressure. How can she decide between new friends and old friends? Will she be able to find a sweet blend of the two?

Review:

"This debut installment of the Cupcakes Diaries covers familiar turf. On the first day of middle school, Katie's best friend Callie snubs her for the 'Popular Girls Club.' Hurt but resilient, Katie bonds with stylish Mia, who has just moved to town from Manhattan; shy Emma; and down-to-earth Alexis. When Katie's overprotective, 'cupcake crazy' mother (who, yes, calls her 'Cupcake') senses that her daughter has had a rough day she proposes a 'cupcake cure' and the two bake a batch, which Katie shares with her new pals. Katie, an affable narrator, asserts that middle school 'got a little bit easier' after she and her friends form the Cupcake Club and bake together on weekends. At a school fundraiser, Katie and crew sell cupcakes (competing with Callie and her cronies, who hawk disastrous makeovers), and win the prize. 'It was like the sweet icing on top of a delicious cupcake,' gushes Katie, whose reconciliation with Callie caps this breezy, predictable middle-grade story. Mia in the Mix pubs simultaneously.

About the Author

Coco Simon always dreamed of opening a cupcake bakery, but she was afraid she would eat all the profits. When sheandrsquo;s not daydreaming about cupcakes, Coco edits childrenandrsquo;s books and has written close to 100 books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes sheandrsquo;s eaten. Cupcake Diaries is the first time Coco has mixed her love of cupcakes with writing.
