When Mia asks the girls in the club to be junior bridesmaids in her mother's wedding, everyone is superexcited about the idea...especially when they find the perfect dress for the occasion! It's Emma's dream dress, except it's a little more than she expected. And with her mom now out of a job (she's been put on furlough at the library) there's not a lot of room at the Taylor's house for extras. But not wanting to disappoint her friends, Emma decides to take on a few more jobs and chores around the house to help cover the cost. Between babysitting her bratty brother, a dog-walking business, flute practice, the Cupcake Club--and oh yeah, being a typical tween girl--Emma may have bitten off more than she can chew. Can she handle it all?

I love this book so much! My favorite part was when Mona said: " Honey, you have a lot of people who love you. That means your a very special person". I am reading the 4th book, Alexis and the perfect receipe.

Great Book

Emma has a lot on her plate. She is a member of the Cupcake Club. She has to look after her little brother, even more now that her mother has taken a night job after a layoff. She walks dogs to earn money to use to buy things she wants. She plays the flute and maintains good grades.

Emma thinks that she can keep it all going by herself. She can't let her friends know that her family is suffering financially. And she cannot let her family know that she is starting to find it too much to bear. So when Mia's mom announces that Emma and the rest of the Cupcake Club are to be junior bridesmaids at her upcoming wedding, her carefully balanced world starts to come apart.

The third volume of this series is not as good the second one. Still it will appeal to a certain type of girl reader.
