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?

Synopsis:

How will Emma make her mark this school year? Will she…

a) Bring love to her fellow classmates
b) Become the most popular girl in school
c) Finally meet her crush, teen singing sensation Jake LaDrake
d) ALL OF THE ABOVE!
 
On the first day of school, Emma Emmets surveys her classmates and sees plenty of shared interests, crushes not being acted upon, and people too afraid of cooties to know what they're missing. Emma tries her hand at uniting lonely Leah and nerdy Otto . . . and a matchmaker is born.

After successfully matching bullies, dorks, athletes, and weirdos, she’s ready for her most high-profile client yet: Isla, a fourth grader so popular she hangs out with the fifth graders. But when Emma's efforts go terribly awry, she finds herself with a powerful new enemy. 

Suddenly life on the playground is horribly wrong. With all her classmates blissfully paired off, Emma's left with no one! Is the matchmaker destined to be alone?
