Katie, Batter Up!

Katie, Batter Up!

(Book #5 of Cupcake Diaries)
For Ages: 8 - 12
Will softball be the extracurricular sweet spot Katie is looking for? A sporty addition to a tween series that’s all about friendship—and cupcakes, of course!

Katie’s Cupcake Club friends all have other activities besides making cupcakes: Mia and Alexis are on the soccer team, and Emma plays the flute. Katie sets out to find her extracurricular niche, and soon she’s dribbling, passing, and catching in an effort to find the right sport for her. Sure Katie can whip up a great cupcake, but can she cook on the field too? When Katie tries out and makes the softball team it’s batter up…but instead of swinging away she gets nervous during games. What if she makes a mistake? What if they lose? Is this the kind of batter Katie really wants to be dealing with? Katie starts to figure out that doing what you love always makes the batter sweeter.

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.
