The Cupcake Diaries: Emma on Thin Icing by Coco Simon

The Cupcake Diaries: Emma on Thin Icing by Coco Simon
Publisher: Simon and Schuster UK
Pages: 150
Format: Paperback ARC

A special Thank you to Simon and Schuster UK for sending me this book to review.

When Mia asks the girls in the club to be junior bridesmaids in her mother's wedding, everyone is superexcited about the idea...especially when they find the perfect dress for the occasion! It's Emma's dream dress, except it's a little more than she expected. And with her mom now out of a job (she's been put on furlough at the library) there's not a lot of room at the Taylor's house for extras. But not wanting to disappoint her friends, Emma decides to take on a few more jobs and chores around the house to help cover the cost. Between babysitting her bratty brother, a dog-walking business, flute practice, the Cupcake Club--and oh yeah, being a typical tween girl--Emma may have bitten off more than she can chew. Can she handle it all?

How cute is this cover?! Not to mention it matches my blog. I knew I had to read it.  I love middle grade books and if you aren't reading them then you are missing out.

This book reminded me of The Baby Sitters Club--and you know how much we all loved those! A group of friends with entrepreneurial spirits. What's better?! This book was really cute. A bit heavier than I had expected. Emma has a lot going on. She has more stress than I think a girl of her age should have and I personally felt that should have been kept to a minimum and have more of the cupcake fun. I really thought it was a bit heavy fro the age group. I expected it to much much lighter and fun. Lots of friendship fun and baking. It called for it. 

But the book is cute. I need to buy the books prior to this one for my niece. She'll love them! Plus, my mouth is still watering to try those bacon cupcakes!
