    "Kids and cupcakes are the perfect recipe." —Sophie and Katherine, stars of TLC's DC Cupcakes

    Meet Lexi Poole.

    To Lexi, a new school year means back to baking with her BFFs in the cupcake club. But the club president, Kylie, is mixing things up by inviting new members. And Lexi is in for a no-so-sweet surprise when she is cast in the school's production of Romeo and Juliet. If only she could be as confident onstage as she is in the kitchen. The icing on the cake: her secret crush is playing Romeo. Sounds like a recipe for trouble.

    Can the girls' friendship stand the heat, or will the cupcake club go up in smoke?

Excerpts-

  • From the book The minute Lexi Poole's laptop sang out "You've got mail!" she dropped her sketchbook and colored pencils, and raced over to her desk to check her messages.

    She hoped it was an email from one of her friends saying they'd arrived home from summer break. But no such luck. It was just an ad for a back-to-school supplies sale at New Fairfield Stationery. "Ugh!" she moaned.

    Most kids loved summer vacation: sun, fun, and no homework! But Lexi missed Blakely Elementary School. She missed her teachers. She missed art class. And she especially missed Peace, Love, and Cupcakes, the cupcake club that had grown to mean so much to her in fourth grade. It was where she had learned to pipe beautiful designs in frosting and sculpt fancy flowers and figures out of gum paste and chocolate. But most importantly, it was where she had met her three BFFs: Kylie Carson, Jenna Medina, and Sadie Harris.

    At first, none of them were eager to join Kylie's baking club-it sounded a little lame. But then, something magical happened. Though they were all very different people, they came together to form an awesome, unbreakable team! In just a few short months, everyone wanted to hire them to bake cupcakes. Mr. Ludwig, owner of the Golden Spoon Gourmet Shop in Greenwich, Connecticut, even placed a weekly order of 300 cupcakes!

    But for Lexi, being in the cupcake club wasn't about being popular or even making money. It was about belonging. Just knowing that she had Kylie, Jenna, and Sadie by her side made her feel less shy. No matter what happened, she wasn't alone. Yes, there had been some crazy adventures (like the time their Leaning Tower of Pisa 3,000-cupcake display toppled to the floor!), but it was the best year of Lexi's life!

    When Juliette Dubois, the club's adviser and Blakely's drama teacher, suggested they shut down the club for the summer, Lexi was devastated.

    "I think it would be wise to take a break, recharge our batteries over the summer," Juliette had said. "You girls are going your separate ways for a few months, and there's no PLC if there's none of you here."

    "But I'm here!" Lexi piped up. She had no plans to go to camp or on vacation with her family. Both her parents had to work.

    "You can't run the entire business by yourself," Kylie said. "Even Mr. Ludwig said he goes to Paris in July and closes down the Golden Spoon. We'll start up again at the end of August, just in time for the back-to-school rush!"

    Sadie and Jenna thought this was a good idea. But Lexi was silent. She couldn't imagine a week without baking cupcakes-and without her friends.

    "You okay, Lex?" Kylie read her mind.

    "I guess. Just sad that PLC is over."

    "It's not over!" Jenna insisted. "We'll be back, bigger and better than ever! I'm going to get my abuela to give me all her recipes. You know she makes a cuatro leches cake instead of tres leches? Can you just imagine a four-milk cupcake? Yum!"

    "And we'll write to each other all summer," offered Sadie. "Every week! It'll be like we're all still together."

    Lexi shrugged. So that was it: PLC would be on break till September. Sadie was off to a basketball camp in North Carolina, Jenna was visiting her grandparents in Ecuador, and Kylie was going to sleepaway camp for the first time in Massachusetts. That left Lexi all alone in New Fairfield, Connecticut.

    "You could go to Camp Echo Pond with your sister, Ava," Lexi's dad pointed out one night at the dinner table. "You'd have a great time."

    Lexi shook her head. "I hate bugs and...

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books 20amehlman - This is an adventure so sweet you might need to go to the dentist after. Lexi Poole, member of PLC (Peace, Love and Cupcakes) comes back from a summer with her aunt in NYC. As school starts, her drama class decides to put on the production Romeo and Juliette. She gets the part of Juliette, even though she is shy, but the worst part is her all time crush got the part of Romeo!

    September 15, 2012
    Kylie and her friends, introduced in Peace, Love and Cupcakes (2012), are back for another bakefest. Founders of a successful cupcake-baking club they call "Peace, Love and Cupcakes," the girls are now entering fifth grade and have been separated for the summer. Lexi, the focus of this installment, spent part of the summer with her quirky aunt in New York City, but she experiences some jealousy as her friends come back with stories of their own summer adventures. After school starts, she's attracted to Jeremy, with whom she's been partnered in the school production of Romeo and Juliet. This makes for some uncomfortable moments as she, with her friends egging her on, searches for a way to let him know she likes him. Meanwhile, the girls are baking at-times vast quantities of cupcakes to fill commercial orders. One weekend they need to come up with 3,500 cupcakes, baked and decorated, which they--remarkably--do! The entrepreneurial aspects of the club seem far beyond the capabilities of a few grade schoolers, however motivated. While most of the interactions and situations (except the baking, and the Shakespeare is a stretch) are typical of the age, there's nothing terrifically compelling going on here. Appended recipes add an amusing, probably yummy, dimension. Fans of the first effort--and young bakers--will likely enjoy another outing, but it's nothing more than an average early chapter book in a crowded field. (Fiction. 8-11)

  • Dad of Divas "This was a fun book that combined two things that most kids love, cupcakes and friends. The book was light and fun, but also brought in a great story line that any child will enjoy. . .The book had some great messages about friendship that I liked and as a parent that I was happy to share with my own girls!"
  • The Brain Lair "As a 5th grader myself, it was a fun read . . . I am looking forward to reading more books in this series, Winner Bakes All sounds fun! In all, this book was baked to perfection!"
  • Time for Kids "Sweet read."
