So cute! Go, Alexis!

In this book Alexis gets a crush on Matt, I think that this is the best book I ever read that was made by Coco Simon in the the series “Cupcake Diaries”.
I think that it was funny that Alexis and Matt were thinking the same thing at Alexis’ sister Dylan’s party, they both said at once “Wanna dance?” I thought that was sweet! They would make a great couple if they ever got married in one of the books.

Totally a great book, you should read it!

This book is kind of weird but I like it in a weird way.

Alexis is the practical one of the cupcake club. She is the one who keeps the budget, making sure there is a profit from every sale. So when she develops a crush fellow cupcake member Emma's older brother Matt, Alexis deals with it as systematically as she does expenses. She begins a research notebook, recording how changing her hair or clothes affects her interactions with Matt. Alexis also records everything she knows about Matt and advice on boys she overhears. But what happens if someone else finds the book? What will she do then.

This fourth book in the Cupcake Diaries series by Coco Simon is an improvement on the last. Alexis's no-nonsense approach to landing a crush is right in character for her. And that it would be her best friend's older brother is also fitting, because for many girls they too find themselves having feelings for a friend's older brother. Excellent recovery from Emma's wobbly story.
