In her new school, Gigi makes a plan to make lots of friends, join in the with popular crowd, and actually have fun. At first, Gigi’s new set of goals works perfectly.

I was really expecting to be bored by this book, but it was SO good. Yes, it’s a cute, easy, read, but it has a surprising amount of depth, and the characters are the best. Gigi, of course, if one of my favorites. She’s smart, funny, and gets herself into some crazy scenarios. Perhaps the best part about this book are the recipes! If you love to cook, you’ll love having the opportunity to make the dishes Gigi talks about all the time. Also, don’t be fooled by the book’s cuteness. There are some serious plot twists — just wait until the end! If you’re a fan of realistic fiction, cooking, for “school drama books”, this book is for you. It may or may not be required to eat treats while reading it 🙂
