Mia has just got some bad news: she needs braces. And just when she thinks things can't get any worse...they do. Her teacher is concerned that Mia is squinting in class and a trip to the optician confirms it: she needs glasses too! Mia is miserable with her new look, but will her Cupcake Club friends manage to reassure her that glasses and braces don't get in the way of what they really see? The same old Mia.
Coco Simon always dreamed of opening a cupcake bakery but she's afraid she would eat all the profits. When she's not daydreaming about cupcakes, Coco edits children's books and has written close to 100 books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes she's eaten. Cupcake Diaries is the first time Coco has mixed her love of cupcakes with writing.
