Meet Sadie.

When she's not mixing it up on the basketball court, she's mixing the perfect batter with her friends in the cupcake club. Sadie's definitely no stranger to competition, but the oven mitts are off when the club is chosen to appear on Battle of the Bakers, the ultimate cupcake competition on TV. But the real battle happens off camera when the club's baking business starts losing money. With the clock ticking and the cameras rolling, will the club and their cupcakes rise to the occasion?

New York Times bestselling co-author of Soul Surfer, SHERYL BERK is the founding editor in chief of Life & Style Weekly as well as a contributor to InStyle, Martha Stewart, and other publications. Her ten-year-old daughter, CARRIE, a cupcake connoisseur, cooked up the idea for THE CUPCAKE CLUB series in second grade. Carrie maintains her own cupcake blog, featuring reviews, photos and recipes of her culinary adventures, called Carrie’s Cupcake Critiques.
Cute and a quick read is how I describe The Cupcake Club: Winner Takes All!! Sadie Harris is a 5th grader who is part of a club called The Cupcake Club. Sadie and her 3 friends Kylie Carson, Jenna Medina and Lexi Poole, all started this club a year ago, and now they own a business baking and selling cupcakes to people who need them for parties, holidays and all other reasons to eat a cupcake. But now, Sadie's mom and dad are arguing a lot, the Cupcake Club is running low on money and their most frequent customer has stopped buying cupcakes.  So Sadie and her friends all enter the most epic cupcake competition, Battle Of The Bakers. Can Sadie and her friends win the competition, and save the Cupcake Club?

This book is an adorably cute and quick read. Sadie is a sporty, math-hating girl, and I can relate to her. I can also relate to Kylie because she doesn't give up easily. Very artsy kids can relate to Lexi, the cupcake decorator and kids with good taste in food can relate to Jenna. A third-person realistic fiction book, the Cupcake Club is a real good book.

Nothing in this book annoyed me. It was a good book through and through. The Cupcake Club were really enjoyable throughout the whole thing. I loved the ending, It was really cute. Even though the story didn't go as you would except, it still had a happy ending and everything worked out perfectly. This is great, because you grow to love Sadie as the book goes on.

The writing style was fantastic. It had a smooth flow and was well written and easy to understand and relate to. I recommend this book for kids from 9-12, because of the thickness and the plot, which is very easy to follow. Any kid who's parents are fighting regularly will be able to relate to Sadie and her bickering parents. This book might inspire kids to make their own Cupcake Club. Overall, The Cupcake Club was a real sweet treat to read.

Here are the books already released from The Cupcake Club series!
