Overview


This delicious new series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Papademetriou is a real treat -- full of humor and heart and cupcakes!

Confession: My life is soooo not sprinkles and sunshine . . .

Hayley's world is far from perfect: her parents have divorced, her mom has lost her job, and she and her sister Chloe are stuck sharing a bedroom in their grandmother's apartment. Luckily, Hayley has a knack for baking cupcakes -- and cupcakes always make life just a little sweeter! But when she and her best friend Artie start drifting apart, she realizes that it's going to take more than sugar and spice to make things nice.

This book is worth reading! I am a teacher and read it with a group of high school teens. They enjoyed reading about the drama between Hailey and her friend as well as Hailey's parental conflicts. Everyone could relate to a character in the book. It was well written, including various new vocabulary words that we were able to learn. As a treat, we made cupcakes to celebrate the fact that we read the book to the end. It wasn't hard getting there though because it was fun to read for everyone. Enjoy this book!
