Introducing It’s Raining Cupcakes by Lisa Schroeder

Each week during our April Book of the Month, we’re featuring a different book from author Lisa Schroeder. This week, we’re focusing on her Middle Grade book It’s Raining Cupcakes. Let’s start the week by telling you more about the book:

Twelve-year-old isabel is dying to get out of Oregon. She spends her free time in the library, reading and dreaming about faraway places. When her mom decides to open a cupcake shop in their little town of Willow, Isabel feels just like buttercream frosting to a cupcake — stuck.

It seems as if it will be another disappointing summer, until Isabel learns of a baking contest. If she can come up with a winning recipe, she might have a chance of competing in the bake-off in New York City

But Isabel’s best friend, Sophie, is also entering the contest — and things always seem to go Sophie’s way. To make matters worse, Isabel and her mom don’t exactly see eye-to-eye on the type of recipe Isabel should enter.

In this sweet treat by popular teen author Lisa Schroeder, Isabel discovers that maybe it’s not about where you go in life as much as it is about enjoying the view from wherever you are.
