When Penny Lane moves from Manhattan to Hog's Hollow, it's more than culture shock. Her mom and dad say they are "taking a break," so she assumes she'll be back home in NYC soon. Instead her mom opens a cupcake bakery and Penny ends up as chief cupcake designer--plus she has to start her freshman year at a new high school and try to make new friends. But nothing seems to work out smoothly, as Penny immediately makes an enemy of the queen bee of the popular crowd--in a cupcake fiasco that will have readers laughing. Penny finds a few kindred spirits and a prank battle ensues, but Penny has to endure life lessons about other relationships as well. Excellent novel for grades 6-9. No sex, language, violence.
I read a lot, especially kid and young adult lit. This blog will review what I've been reading. I get most of my reading material from the library, plus I buy books at school book fairs and the usual stores. I look for freebies on Amazon for my Kindle, and I'm happy to review any ARCs or e-galleys I can get my hands on.
