Dessert Schneider has her very own personal style. But sometimes walking to the beat of her own drum means walking right into a heap of mischief, especially when it comes to the legendary family recipe (and Dessert's all-time favorite treat), Grandma Reine's Double-Decker Chocolate Bars. As the oldest in a rambunctious, restaurant-owning family, with a four-year-old sister who is going through a "phase" and two little brothers called “the Beasties,” Dessert seems to be better at getting into trouble than getting out of it. And that's because for this eight-year-old, saying sorry is definitely not a piece o'cake!

    I just finished reading this book and it was amazing because the characters were daring and realistic. Dessert Schneider is expecting a visit from her grandmother. Her mom makes her grandmother's favorite dessert, then Dessert eats it all!! Now she is in trouble. She has to help her mom figure out how to make a batch quick! Dessert looks at the ingredients on the box, and goes down to her parent's restaurant to ask the cook for help. If you enjoy humor and adventure, you should read this book!
