Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
After a cavity-free visit with the dentist, Mia finds out that she needs braces to straighten her teeth. In this fourteenth book of the "Cupcake Diaries" series, Mia agonizes over the fashion statement of a metallic smile and the pain of orthodontia work. However, she finds out about braces from her close friend, Katie, who has had them. Alexis, another close friend, suggests the option of clear braces because they don't show up like the metallic ones. After consulting with the orthodontist, Katie considers making a pitch to her parents to pay for the extra cost for clear braces. As if braces weren't enough of a problem, Mia discovers that she is nearsighted and cannot see the chalkboard. Besides braces, she now needs eyeglasses. With the support of her close friends in the "Cupcake Club," Mia tackles each situation. Through it all, the Club continues baking cupcakes for parties and sales. At the back of the book are a few activities (i.e., word puzzles, drawing). Fans of the series will also find an excerpt from next book, which features Emma. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

Meet the Author

Coco Simon always dreamed of opening a cupcake bakery, but she was afraid she would eat all the profits. When she’s not daydreaming about cupcakes, Coco edits children’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 she’s eaten. Cupcake Diaries is the first time Coco has mixed her love of cupcakes with writing.
