Alexis thinks the Cupcake Club feels incomplete—until she discovers that friendship comes in many flavors.

Alexis feels lonely and left out when Emma goes away on a family trip. Sure, Mia and Katie are her friends too, but without her BFF Emma to round out the group, Alexis feels like a third wheel. Then when Ava comes to visit Mia, Katie is the one who feels like she just lost her best friend. Eventually all the girls realize friends are like cupcakes—you can never have too many!

    This book was amazing and got me hooked on the first few pages. Alexis is super bored, and with the long weekend, she has nothing to do. Her best friend Emma goes on a camping trip with her family, and Mia and Katie might go to the city. That's when trouble starts. Alexis sees Mia and Katie at the mall, and she gets to go to the city with them, but sticking together as a group of friends can be hard. Alexis finds herself talking about Emma all the time, which hurts her other friends, Mia's friend, Ava, joins for the trip to, and now it's a competition for friendship. Can these friends pull it together and understand the true meaning to friendship?
