Alexis Cool as a Cupcake

(Book #8 of Cupcake Diaries)
For Ages: 8 - 12
The Cupcake Club learns that good leadership is a huge part of running a successful business—and friendship is the icing on the cake!

Alexis is the clear leader of the Cupcake Club: She’s organized, punctual, and happy to take on the stuff like scheduling, budgets, invoicing, and the things that the other girls don’t really want to do. In other words, the “unfun” things. But one day Alexis feels particularly unappreciated and informs the Cupcake Club that she is no longer in charge! After deadlines get missed and supplies aren’t bought, the girls realize they definitely need a leader….And Alexis realizes being the leader is kind of cool; as long as you know how to ask for help when you need it!

About the Author

Coco Simon

Coco Simon always dreamed of opening a cupcake bakery, but she was 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.
