Waiting on Wednesday (25)--The Cupcake Queen by Heather Hepler
Release Date: September 17, 2009 from Dutton Juvenile
A confection of a novel, combining big city sophistication with small town charm.
When her mother moves them from the city to a small town to open up a cupcake bakery, Penny’s life isn’t what she expected. Her father has stayed behind, and Mom isn’t talking about what the future holds for their family. And then there’s Charity, the girl who plays mean pranks almost daily. There are also bright spots in Hog’s Hollow—like Tally, an expert in Rock Paper Scissors, and Marcus, the boy who is always running on the beach. But just when it looks as though Penny is settling in, her parents ask her to make a choice that will turn everything upside down again. A sweet novel about love, creativity, and accepting life’s unexpected turns.
I've seen this one on a few blogs here and there, and that delish cover always catches my eye. I can't seem to look away from those cupcakes. Not to mention, Heather Hepler is one half of the writing team that brought you Dream Factory, which I loved in all its Disneyesque glory. Needless to say, I can't wait for this one, although I think I'm gaining weight just looking at the cover.
Waiting on Wednesday is brought to you by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.
