This first book in The Cupcake Diaries is told through the perspective of Katie Brown. We find Katie miserable on the first day of middle school. Her best friend Callie came back from camp boy-crazy and part of a whole new group of friends. When it's made clear that Callie is in the PGC (Popular Girls Club) and Katie is not invited to join, Katie suddenly feels incredibly alone. Katie realizes if she’s going to survive middle school she needs to seriously regroup and find some new friends. But how? She bites into the cupcake her mother packed her for lunch and for a second closes her eyes. The sweet treat makes her happy—finally something goes right! Looking around her table, Katie notices the other students seeming a bit lost, as well. Which gives her an idea…With three new friends Katie forms a club as a way to spread the cupcake love and earn some cupcake cash.

    This is the first book in the cupcake diaries books written by Coco Simon. Katie goes to the bus stop on the first day of middle school and is surprised when her best friend ditches her to walk to school with the popular girls. Katie sits on the bus, and a new girl named Mia sits next to her. They quickly become friends and then meet again during lunch. There they meet Alexis and Emma. The four of them quickly discover that they all have a similarity: They all love cupcakes! Together they decide to open a cupcake business. Will these best friends' cupcake business be a success? Read the book to find out out! This is a great book and if you like it you should read the rest of the series and the Sunday Sundaes series also by Coco Simon! Hope you enjoy the book!

              Great book for kids in middle school or those who just want a good read. I read this a few years ago (in elementary school) and definitely loved it, but middleschoolers may have things they may be able too relate too in this book. :D

                      Yes, I know this book looks a little to girly... and yes it is kinda girly. But I really enjoyed it. I read it in 5th grade it is really good.
