Book 58: The Cupcake Queen

Barnes and Noble's Description:

Written by: Heather Helper


A confection of a novel, combining big city sophistication with small town charm. When her mother moves them from the city to a small town to open up a cupcake bakery, Penny’s life isn’t what she expected. Her father has stayed behind, and Mom isn’t talking about what the future holds for their family. And then there’s Charity, the girl who plays mean pranks almost daily. There are also bright spots in Hog’s Hollow—like Tally, an expert in Rock Paper Scissors, and Marcus, the boy who is always running on the beach. But just when it looks as though Penny is settling in, her parents ask her to make a choice that will turn everything upside down again. A sweet novel about love, creativity, and accepting life’s unexpected turns.

My Thoughts: What a cute story! It's your standard, new girl in a new town who isn't accepted but I loved it. The fact that cupcakes were a huge point of focus in this book didn't hurt :-) It was a quick read with good characters. I think everyone has had similar changes in their lives (like Penny Lane) and can definitely relate to this book. 

My Grade: A
