Description

This first book in The Cupcake Diaries is told through the perspective of Katie Brown. We find Katie miserable on the first day of middle school. Her best friend Callie came back from camp boy-crazy and part of a whole new group of friends. When it's made clear that Callie is in the PGC (Popular Girls Club) and Katie is not invited to join, Katie suddenly feels incredibly alone. Katie realizes if she's going to survive middle school she needs to seriously regroup and find some new friends. But how? She bites into the cupcake her mother packed her for lunch and for a second closes her eyes. The sweet treat makes her happy--finally something goes right! Looking around her table, Katie notices the other students seeming a bit lost, as well. Which gives her an idea...With three new friends Katie forms a club as a way to spread the cupcake love and earn some cupcake cash.

Having written over thirty books about middle school girls and cupcakes and ice cream, Coco Simon decided it was time for a change; so she's switched her focus to her third favorite sweet treat: donuts! When she's not daydreaming about yummy snacks, Coco edits children's books and has written close to one hundred books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes, ice cream cones, and donuts she's eaten. She is the author of the Cupcake Diaries, the Sprinkle Sundays, and the Donut Dreams series.

        July 11, 2011
        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. Ages 8–12.

        Grades 4-6 Katie spends the summer before middle school blissfully unconcerned about the impending transition. Her first school day delivers a jolt when she realizes that her best friend has abandoned her for the newly formed Popular Girls Club, but Katie quickly befriends Mia, Emma, and Alexis. The four girls bond over lunch and soon form the Cupcake Club. After a bake sale and her first dance, Katie finds that she may enjoy middle school after all. Katie makes an appealing figure as she navigates the difficulties of finding her way, literally and figuratively, in her new school. She and her supportive (if somewhat overprotective) single mother are recognizable, believable characters, and Katies middle school will seem like familiar territory to many readers. Though Katie narrates the first volume in the Cupcake Diaries, evidently Mia will narrate the next book in the series. The ease with which troubles are overcome makes this a light, pleasant choice for tweens.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2011, American Library Association.)
