Summary from Simon and Schuster
When Mia arrives at her new school, her motto is to be open to and friendly with everyone, but everyone at Park Street School fits into a clique. When the Popular Girls Club takes interest in Mia's awesome fashion style and wants to recruit her. Mia has to decide between them and her great new Cupcake Club friends. It's like choosing between the divorced mom and dad and her old house and new house. Is it always going to be Mia in the middle, or can she mix it up?

Nayuleska's thoughts
Mia is so different from Katie (protagonist in the first book) which shows in the story - I like this. Mia's family life has a big impact on her place in the Cupcake Club. I really felt for her while she was faced with tough friendship choices, as it is faithful to real life scenarios. Another 10/10 read from Coco! 

Suggested read
Definitely check out where the girls first met in Katie and the Cupcake Cure
