New Moon Girls, "Lacey Recommends"

"[Emme's] parents are splitting up, and her best friends are fighting. She looks to find peace by working in a new, possibly enchanted, bakery and putting love rather than pain into her creations. (If you like this book, make sure to check out the others in the Dessert Diaries series, too)." - New Moon Girls, "Lacey Recommends"

Kids' Book Buzz/San Francisco Book Review - Susan Faith, age 8

"One of the things I liked best about this story was a poem that Emme wrote. I won’t copy the whole thing, but the first line reads, “Happy Anniversary time is here; You are both so very dear.” . . .this is a good story that I think girls ages eight to ten would probably really enjoy." - Kids' Book Buzz/San Francisco Book Review
