"I think that this is one of the best ideas for a club ever. I mean, I would totally join this club if it was available at my school! Nevertheless, I liked the role that it had to play in the story. I liked how it brought together all the main characters, making them form a strong friendship. I thought that this was a unique club idea in a novel, and something I could really relate to." - Esther's Ever After

Format: Paperback
This book is overall just plain cute. It is a very cute book and a great book for a young girl to read. It also hits on issues such as bullying, money, small business, failure and making friends. Kylie is a character that does her best to move past the bullying and to do something to make her life happier and more enjoyable and in the process, also helps other girls and she makes new friends. All of these girls have a great work ethic and it makes me proud of them.

I loved reading about all of the successes and failures the club had while baking. At first you get to see them make the worst cupcakes and then before you know it, they are making cupcakes that people are buying and they are getting more orders they can't even handle. I loved the "Batter Butt Dance"...had me cracking up!

This book is packed with baking tips and tricks that are perfect for a younger crowd...or even brand new bakers. The recipes that are included at the back of the book are simple to follow. The Berks also include a list of tips for the new cupcake baker that I found to be helpful.

One day when I was reading this book at park, a little girl came up to me and asked me about it! Obviously the cover is eye catching to the right audience! My four-year-old is even jealous of my book!

My middle-school daughter had fun with this book, but it is really more for mid-elementary grades, say grade 3 and up. A fun story about some girls at school coming to terms with the clique they're not in, by starting their own cupcake business. The depiction of the social scene stays light as whipped frosting (sorry, no one can resist confection puns here) and humorous. Nice, cute, and empowering to girls; even "reluctant readers" will like it.

Our 10 year old is an avid reader and quite the book critic - she knows how to differentiate an excellent book from a not-so-great-but-entertaining book from a I-could-have-written-this-myself book. She LOVED this one and read it in a few hours and asked for the others in the series. She did say that the vocabulary used in the book is not as extraordinary as other books in terms of descriptive language, but she loved the story.

Peace, Love & Cupcakes is the start of a wonderful club called The Cupcake Club. Kylie has just moved up north from Florida and is having a hard time fitting in and also dealing with a bully named Meredith. One day after a teacher noticed that Kylie is having a hard time, she suggests that Kylie start a club but after having a hard time getting people to join, Kylie starts looking for people who are outsiders like herself. As she finds three girls who are like herself and with special skills, the club is destined to be a hit!

A cupcake club is formed but it doesn't go easy the first time around but as the four girls learn to make the best cupcakes that there is, they become highly recommended. When Meredith's mother calls in for a big order for Meredith's birthday party and a request not to put a ingredient in because Meredith is allergic to it. When the day arrives for the party and with Kylie wanting to get back at Meredith for all she has done, the ingredient goes on the cake at the last minute and causes Meredith to get sick quickly and makes Kylie regret everything. After Meredith's mother tells the school and with the club's future in limbo, Kylie tells the school everything that Meredith has done to her and it's ends with four girls coming together that nobody ever saw being friends to save their club.

This book may be for young kids but I so loved this book and the start of this fantastic series! When I used to work at a Elementary School Library, I could see so many kids going crazy for this series and books that Sheryl & Carrie write. Reading this book makes me want to go find other books in this series and read until I'm all caught on the series and plus who can turn down a book that includes recipes!!

Thank You to Sheryl & Carrie Berk for writing such a fantastic start to a series that I think will do very well!!

I borrowed this book from my local Library.

I used this book as a read aloud in my 5th grade classroom. Each day the class begged me to read more of the book to them. It was a great non threatening way to start discussions about bullying and being bullied.

Peace, Love and Cupcakes is a story about a girl named Kylie who is tortured by another girl named Meredith. When a school play takes place Kylie plays the part of a radish. On the day of the play Meredith puts something on Kylie’s outfit. Because of what happens that day at the play Kylie makes a club called Peace, Love and Cupcakes and invites other girls to join.

Peace, Love and Cupcakes is one of my top five books! You will love learning about the other characters. I woke up one weekend, started reading this book and didn’t stop until I had finished it! It doesn’t have any drawing, but it is worth reading. There are cupcake recipes in the book too!

I would recommend this book to second and third graders who really love cupcakes. I give this book a big thumbs up!

A Kid's Review on February 21, 2013
Format: Paperback
The book Peace, Love, and Cupcakes is a great book. Its about a girl named Kylie who is always picked on by a popular girl named Meredith. One day after a drama class performance Kylie's drama teacher told her that she used to be picked on too. She suggested that Kylie start a baking club. Kylie gathered three girls to bake with her. At first they tried baking brownies but they came out as a disaster! Next they tried baking cupcakes and they came out delicious! The group decided to bake only cupcakes. Soon EVERYONE loved their cupcakes. A person from the Golden Spoon even came and asked them to do 200 cupcakes a week! After that lots of other people started asking them to bake cupcakes for parties. The club used to be a regular after school club but now it became a small business! Later the school asked the PLC (Peace, Love, and Cupcakes) to bake cupcakes shaped as snowmen for a winter party! Meredith had two people put gummy bugs in their cupcakes. They started screaming "There is a bug in my cupcake!" while throwing the cupcake down. Everyone was afraid to eat them! To make it worse Meredith told everyone that she baked brownies! Someone said that they were yummy and that Meredith should start a business. Meredith said "Maybe I should! I'll call it Peace, Love, and Brownies!" Is it the end of the PLC? Will Meredith take their business away? Read this book to find out!
