Kylie has just moved up north from Florida and is having a hard time fitting in and also dealing with a bully named Meredith. One day after a teacher noticed that Kylie is having a hard time, she suggests that Kylie start a club but after having a hard time getting people to join, Kylie starts looking for people who are outsiders like herself. As she finds three girls who are like herself and with special skills, the club is destined to be a hit!
A cupcake club is formed but it doesn't go easy the first time around but as the four girls learn to make the best cupcakes that there is, they become highly recommended. When Meredith's mother calls in for a big order for Meredith's birthday party and a request not to put a ingredient in because Meredith is allergic to it. When the day arrives for the party and with Kylie wanting to get back at Meredith for all she has done, the ingredient goes on the cake at the last minute and causes Meredith to get sick quickly and makes Kylie regret everything. After Meredith's mother tells the school and with the club's future in limbo, Kylie tells the school everything that Meredith has done to her and it's ends with four girls coming together that nobody ever saw being friends to save their club.
This book may be for young kids but I so loved this book and the start of this fantastic series! When I used to work at a Elementary School Library, I could see so many kids going crazy for this series and books that Sheryl & Carrie write. Reading this book makes me want to go find other books in this series and read until I'm all caught on the series and plus who can turn down a book that includes recipes!!
Thank You to Sheryl & Carrie Berk for writing such a fantastic start to a series that I think will do very well!!
I borrowed this book from my local Public Library!
