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.

      I think this book is a good one! Katie’s start of middle school, does not go as planned. Her best friend Callie Wilson ditches her for the popular girls club. But then things start to go right. Katie meets this girl named Mia on the bus. Later they sit together at lunch. Two girls named Emma and Alexias also sit with them. The girls become instant friends. When Katie brings cupcakes to lunch, they have this idea of cupcake Friday. That’s how Katie met her new best friends and started the cupcake club.

        Every book in the cupcake diaries series is a good one, and this is the first book in the series! Katie just entered middle school, and it's already a bust! Her best friend left to join the popular table, and Katie is alone. Lucky for her, she meets some new people who are happy to be her new friends. And Guess what? They like the same thing she does: Cupcakes! All four friends join together to create their own cupcake cub where they make and sell cupcakes! This book is fantastic!

                      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
