Annie juggles sabotage and summer romance in this refreshing follow-up to The Teashop Girls that includes recipes for tea-related treats!

It’s the summer before ninth grade, and Annie has been working hard at the Steeping Leaf, which has been busier than ever. And Annie’s involved in a huge scone cook-off with one of Louisa’s tea suppliers that could mean an all-expenses paid trip to London! But competition is tough, and Annie suspects sabotage when some mean comments show up on her blog. Then there’s the whole matter of a stolen kiss with Zach Anderson in the Steeping Leaf stockroom…. With the help of her two best friends, Genna and Zoe, can Annie come up with an awesome contest entry and sort out her love life before the end of the summer?
     To sweeten the brew, Laura Schaefer has also included recipes for tea and tea-related treats along with lists and amusing quotes—the perfect accents to a great girl read!
