Mia in the Mix (Cupcake Diaries series #2) by Coco Simon–ADVISABLE
Club Cupcake is back, this time from Mia’s perspective. Since Mia’s parents are divorced and she lives in a new town with her mom, she had to make new friends. That’s where the trouble starts. Mia has her old best friend from Manhattan, her new best friends in Club Cupcake, and is finding she has a lot in common with the dreaded popular girls club members. When Mia’s mom puts on a fashion show that Club Cupcake is catering, with strictly limited tickets, Mia will have decide who to invite and who her real friends are.
A second book that is both fun and sweet, this story offers the perspective of a girl from a divorced and step family. She has to deal with a new home, new friends, a future step brother, and her dad dating. The problems are all realistic, but fuzzy and happy all the same. I recommend for older elementary students.
