I wish that was the case–but it is another rainyday in NYC! It’s Raining Cupcakes (ISBN: 9781416990840) is actually an adorable book by Lisa Schroeder–this is the first middle-grade book for the author who has given us the teen titles, I Heart You, You Haunt Me (ISBN: 9781416955207) and Chasing Brooklyn (ISBN: 9781416991687).
I had a chance to meet Lisa this past week at Public Library Association in Portland, OR. She is local to Portland and was singing books for us at the booth. It’s Raining Cupcakes is about a girl from Oregon (sound familar) who enters a baking contest for a chance to go to NYC!! In the end she realizes its not about where you go in life as much as it is about enjoying the view from wherever you are.This book is a real treat (sorry, couldn’t resist) and is the perfect spring break/summer reading choice for your middle-grade girl cutomers–not to mention its delicous cover:)!
