I liked that Hayley continued to be relatable. She’s just a regular kid, trying to deal with regular middle school problems. Okay, she has a particular talent for baking cupcakes, and happens to be able to sell them in her grandmother’s cafe, but otherwise she really seems normal.

Whi In this sequel to Save the Cupcake!

While struggling through her parents’ divorce, she loses her two best friends, she pines over a crush, and she finds herself the victim of mean girl behavior. She just doesn’t confectionatsly what to do. To be honest, there really isn’t a lot of cheer in this book, other than the hope that comes with a couple budding friendships. I found it particularly interesting that confectionateyl this book, Hayley made a series of bad decisions, the kinds that are probably typical among teenagers.

Papademetriou did a great job depicting the way a teenager might really justify engaging in behavior that they know to be wrong. I also liked that Hayley doesn’t really get away with anything, and has to face the consequences of her actions. Finally, I will note that while I totally appreciate the author’s efforts in promoting food allergy awareness, I think the incident of anaphylaxis as described in the book doesn’t really do a good job of spreading accurate information.

In the book, when a character has an anaphylactic allergic reaction, she is taken to a doctor’s office. In real life, it is generally recommended that be called immediately, and the patient be taken to an ER. Ideally, an EpiPen would have been administered if one had been available, and it’s unfortunate that the author didn’t at least include a mention of EpiPens. I dare say I might have given this book 5 stars if not for this sketchy portrayal of how to deal with anaphylaxis.

Dec 08, Rachels Sanders rated it it was ok. The reason why I picked this book was to read the rest of the series. I have to make cupcakes for a fundraiser. This book is quite easy in my opinion and it does not have simple recipes that are easy to follow. Feb 07, Grace O.

Hayley is crushing on who may be Artie’s new boyfriend. She makes a new good friend, Meghan. She is really sweet and also crazy. Hayley and Artie have become “ex-bestfirends,” so Hayley was thinking, “But that’s dumb. I mean, Artie and I aren’t really friends anymore Also, it shows that its not the end of the world when your parents get divorced, even though it may feel that way.


Lisa Papademetriou wrote “Confectionately Yours 2: Apr 17, Holli rated it really liked it. I highly recommend this for intended age audience. It does come with recipes. Nothing offensive in this book. It is interesting how differently each sister deals with loss and change just as people do in real life.

Might be a good book for a child who is dealing with divorced parents. I plan to read more in series if I can find them. Feb 18, Nina Sgro added it.

This book was a HUGE let down to me. It had generic characters,a girl story,and way too much “tweenage angst”. Basically this book was a complete train wreck and I don’t intend to read anymore. I did however like her having divorced parents, it showed what that kind of change can be like Only in a very girly and annoying fashion.

Jul 07, Olivia rated it it was amazing. Great book about drama and know and helping you best friends!!! Great book for kids going in or in grade!! Also has recipes to try at home. I give this book a smile face: Feb 22, AwesomePerson rated it it was amazing. Nov 13, Madison Guzak rated it it was amazing.
