The Cupcake Diaries: Emma on Thin Icing


The Cupcake Diaries: Emma on Thin Icing by Coco Simon

When Mia asks the girls in the club to be junior bridesmaids in her mother's wedding, everyone is super-excited about the idea...especially when they find the perfect dress for the occasion! It's Emma's dream dress, except it's a little more than she expected. And with her mum now out of a job (she's been put on unpaid leave at the library) there's not a lot of room at the Taylor's house for extras. But not wanting to disappoint her friends, Emma decides to take on a few more jobs and chores around the house to help cover the cost. Between babysitting her bratty brother, a dog-walking business, flute practice, the Cupcake Club - and oh yeah, being a typical tween girl - Emma may have bitten off more than she can chew. Can she handle it all?

About the Author

Coco Simon always dreamed of opening a cupcake bakery but she's afraid she would eat all the profits. When she's not daydreaming about cupcakes, Coco edits children's books and has written close to 100 books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes she's eaten. Cupcake Diaries is the first time Coco has mixed her love of cupcakes with writing.
