LOVED IT In this sequel to Save the Cupcake , Lisa Papademetriou continues her commitment to diversity Besides fleshing out some characters with autism and food allergies, she also introduces a new character who is Latino I liked that Hayley continued to be relatable She s just a regular kid, trying to deal with regular middle school problems Okay, she has a particular talent for baking cupcakes, and happens to be able to sell them in her grandmother s cafe, but otherwise she really seems normal Whi In this sequel to Save the Cupcake , Lisa Papademetriou continues her commitment to diversity Besides fleshing out some characters with autism and food allergies, she also introduces a new character who is Latino I liked that Hayley continued to be relatable She s just a regular kid, trying to deal with regular middle school problems Okay, she has a particular talent for baking cupcakes, and happens to be able to sell them in her grandmother s cafe, but otherwise she really seems normal While struggling through her parents divorce, she loses her two best friends, she pines over a crush, and she finds herself the victim of mean girl behavior She just doesn t know what to do To be honest, there really isn t a lot of cheer in this book, other than the hope that comes with a couple budding friendships I found it particularly interesting that in this book, Hayley made a series of bad decisions, the kinds that are probably typical among teenagers Papademetriou did a great job depicting the way a teenager might really justify engaging in behavior that they know to be wrong I also liked that Hayley doesn t really get away with anything, and has to face the consequences of her actions Finally, I will note that while I totally appreciate the author s efforts in promoting food allergy awareness, I think the incident of anaphylaxis as described in the book doesn t really do a good job of spreading accurate information In the book, when a character has an anaphylactic allergic reaction, she is taken to a doctor s office In real life, it is generally recommended that 911 be called immediately, and the patient be taken to an ER Ideally, an EpiPen would have been administered if one had been available, and it s unfortunate that the author didn t at least include a mention of EpiPens I dare say I might have given this book 5 stars if not for this sketchy portrayal of how to deal with anaphylaxis i love this book so much it has alot because it has passion to it i reccomend this book to passionate readers its about hailey moving into a new house and owning a tea shop with her grandma Then, her ex bff artie has a boyfriend that Hailey likes I really like this book, and i bet every reader would to. Fun fast read The recipes are included making a fun additional option for reading together.

This book was a HUGE let down to me It had generic characters,a girl story,and way too much tweenage angst Basically this book was a complete train wreck and I don t intend to read any I did however like her having divorced parents, it showed what that kind of change can be likeOnly in a very girly and annoying fashion. An awesome book Truly It just makes u feel part of the story.like when Hayley s dad got a new girl friend after her parents got a divorce, Hayley s doesn t like his new girl, shes mean to her so her little sis Chloe tries to get Hayley s to like her but instead she smothers her dads girl with attention and makes Hayley mad I m not gonna give u the rest though so ya great book ^Free Pdf ↝ Taking the Cake! ↾ Confession Hayley s in another sticky situationHayley and her little sister, Chloe, have just moved into their grandmother s house with their mom, who recently divorced their dad and now runs the family s tea shop With her knack for baking, Hayley helps out too, but her newfound talent seems to have cost her her best friend, Artie Now Hayley s crushing on someone who might just be Artie s new boyfriend This mess really takes the cake
