Simon, Coco Mia’s Recipe for Disaster (Cupcake Diaries #22) 160 pages Simon Spotlight, 2014. $6.99
Because Mia is very interested in Fashion she has been taking
classes at the esteemed Parson’s school of design in New York City. When the
chance comes up to enter a fashion design contest she is consumed by it. She argues
with all of her friends but especially Katie, is completely stressed out, and
even when she finishes the dress, things don’t go well at all. Is winning worth
losing her best friend?
I thought I would like this book a ton, because of the fashion
component, but it sort of revealed a very uncaring and snobby side to Mia, I
don’t really think she overcame it that well. This has been my least favorite
read in the series so far, and I have read a ton of them. Still a great series,
that never fails to make me hungry for a cupcake!
