Reading Wednesday - Save the Cupcake! by Papademitriou

This is a middle grade novel about a girl named Hayley. Thanks to her parent's recent divorce and her Mom's job loss, she now lives with her grandmother and spends many afternoons at her grandmother's bakery. She has two best friends, but thanks to the fact that they are seventh graders and are all discovering themselves, they run into some problems along the way. She transfers her troubles into unique cupcakes recipes, which are included in the book as well!

After I fell into it, I sort of liked the pacing and voice in this story. The first couple of chapters were really weird and unnatural, but after that things started to click. There are also a couple of time jumps in the first couple of chapters. It took me a little bit to figure it out, but for the novel she's in seventh grade. I thought this was a super cute book and I've already ordered the next one on Amazon. :)
