    I wrote this book, the third and final book that features Isabel, Sophie and now, Lily. I'm going to miss these girls! I had so much fun writing these books and my wish is that kids will have fun reading them, hearing about the girls' dilemmas around friendships and sweet treats, neither of which you can have too many of, in my opinion.Recipes are included in the back, in case you get hungry while reading. :) Enjoy!

    This book is about Lilly trying to be a musician and baker at the same time. She later gets into fights with her friends Abigail and Zola about her band " The Dots ". Isabel , Sophie's friend asks her to help her plan a surprise party for Sophie. She gets really caught up in trying to fit in with trying to fit in with her book club The Baking Bookworms. When she finds out that the book club is going to be just about books and baking ( which she is bad at baking ). When she tells The New Pirates her band rivals that she will participate in the auditions for the spring fling she gets herself into a big dilemma. I give this book five stars because I feel it is my type of book. This book was a real page turner and hope there will be another book following this one along with the other ones! I happy to say that I loved it! This is a great book about a girl trying to fit in with two ver different groups. Thank you for reading!

    I love Lisa Schroeder's young adult novels and with this book have discovered (not surprisingly!) her middle grade voice is every bit as winsome and entertaining. Will definitely be reading the other books in the series.

    I think this book is very good becuase in the book it shows perserverance and determination. It shows perseverance because Lily takes on way too much than she can handle when she joins a mother-daughter book club called "Baking Bookworms". In this club you read books and every time you meet someone brings dessert. Meanwhile she also joins an all girl band and she's the lead singer. The bands goal was to play at the schools annual Spring Fling. That way her band gets noticed. While she's trying to juggle all that her, friend Isabel wants her to help plan a Sweet Thirteen bash for their friend Sophie. Isabel is expecting Lily to making a showstopping dessert for the party. This book also shows determainition because she's determined to doing both, making a showstopping dessert for the party and trying to commit full time to her band.written by: Jaylene Bonilla

    I really enjoyed Frosting and Friendship by Lisa Schroeder. I thought this book was made for girls that are in 4th - 9th grade that like realistic fiction. However, if you are going to read this book, I would recommend reading the first two books, It's Raining Cupcakes and Sprinkles and Secrets, is this series. This book can get a little slow/boring at times, but the climax and exciting parts are worth it. It can take a little time, because of the slow parts, but the ending is amazing, so if you want to find out what the ending is, go read it.

    I loved this book. The theme of finding something you're good at and pursuing it wholeheartedly is relatable at any age. I highly recommend this for any young girl.

    Frosting and Friendship was a great book! It was all about finding yourself and choosing the path you want to be on. It was all about a girl named Lily who struggled with baking and friendship. She always knew that she belonged with a singing career but in order to gain trust in Sophie (a girl from camp), she had to step out of her comfort zone a little.I loved the book. Personally, I loved how it was all about food and music. Those two things are my life and I thought it was cool how it incorporated both. Lisa Schroeder is an amazing author and I believe her series is very successful and a huge hit in my book. It would be good for girls’ ages 8-13. That is the range that this book represents.The book included drama as well as everyday life problems. It was realistic and that is why I loved it. The book doesn’t make people jealous or exclude kids because they are not perfect. It shows that everyone gets stressed out over friends, school, skills, etc. No one has it all.If I were to rate this book, I would give it 5 stars. I think that any book that represents real life should be awarded. It is easier to make things up then figure out regular problems that still can be special enough to make a book out of. Lily is a character to love which gives the book extra points. I knew I would love her because she knows what is right but still lives an ordinary life.Basically, Frosting and Friendship was the best! Between characters, conflicts, themes, main points, and the skills in it, the book was outstanding. I hope that people can love this book as much as I do and appreciate it in general. It’s awesome and so is Lily!

    “The people who made their dreams come true felt afraid too, but they didn’t let it stop them.”Lily, the newest friend in the trio with Sophie and Isabel, wants to impress her new friends. They have started a mother-daughter book club called The Baking Bookworms. The host is responsible for baking up something special for the meetings. All the other members love and are very good at baking. Lily, not so much. Her passion is music and the band that she's in with Abigail and Zola. Three is a difficult number for a group of friends. There's always someone feeling left out. Lily desperately wants to be as a good a friend with Sophie as Isabel is, so she throw her heart into the baking. When Isabel calls Lily and wants her to co-host a surprise birthday party for Sophie, Lily agrees to host. Which means, of course, she's in charge of making an "amazing" dessert. Let the stress begin! To make matters worse, Isabel invites the New Pirates (a rival band) to perform at the party after Lily assures her band that they will be able to perform.Lily's trying to hard to make everyone happy. “My heart feels like it’s a rope in a tug-of-war game. Isabel and Sophie are on one end while Abigail and Zola are pulling on the other.” Is this whole baking thing really who she is? Or is she just trying to fit in with these new friends? If her passion is music, shouldn't her friends accept that?A good friendship story about pursuing dreams and being happy with who you are.

    In this companion to It's Raining Cupcakes and Sprinkles and Secret, we find Lily struggling with a lot of different things. Her friend Isabel is in the Baking Bookworms book group with her, but since Isabel's mother runs a cupcake shop, providing home baked goodies for the group isn't a problem. Lily, however, is a disastrous cook but is a much better musician. Her group, the Dots, are hoping to win a local talent show against the New Pirates. When Isabel asks for Lily's help in putting together a birthday party for Sophie, their mutual friend, Isabel agrees. Things get hairy, however, when Isabel expects Lily to bake, host the party, AND let the New Pirates play at it. Lily is stressed out not only by the amount of things that have to be done, but by telling the Dots about the party, and letting Isabel know that while she is a good friend, the party is too much for her.Strengths: The covers on all of these books are fantastic, and Schroeder clearly knows her tween girl social interactions. I liked how this could be read without the others OR as the third in the series.Weaknesses: There is a teacher named Mr. Weisenheimer, which could perfectly well be a legitimate name, but it made me flinch every time I read it. I was also a little surprised that Lily's parents let her take on so much, but Ms. Schroeder does a good job of making it seem plausible.

    When Lily and her mom join a Mother-Daughter bookclub, Lily is excited to be in it with her new friend, Sophie, but also worries that it will be taking valuable time away from her first: love, music, and her old friends and fellow band members, Zola and Abigail. And, to make matters worse, the bookclub is named The Baking Bookworms. She is even more terrified since her baking skills are abysmal. When Sophie's friend and fellow bookclubber asks Lily to host a surprise 13th birthday party for Sophie at her house, things really get out of hand with baking, decorating, and trying to please everyone. Much to the dismay of her fellow bandmates, Lily is canceling practice much too much of the time to compete effectively in their school's Spring Fling. How will Lily please everyone while staying true to herself? With the help of some good friends, both old and new, she finds a way to do what she loves and let others bake their hearts out. Frosting and Friendship is a sweet (no pun intended) story of friendship, recipes, and growing up.

    Frosting and Friendship by Lisa Schroeder is a great book to read because it teaches you a great lesson that everybody isn't always perfect. Lily can't bake and she doesn't tell her book club "The baking book worms"because, she thinks they will make fun of her. Something else that she is great at is her band. Lily and her band try to come up with a song for the spring fling dance. In the middle of the practice Lily gets a call from one of her friends saying that it was going to be her best friend Sophie's 13 birthday bash and Lily had to bake a treat for the party. Lily freaked out because she didn't know what she was going to bake. But, with a little help of Chef Smiley's baking channel Lily was able to make cake pops for the party. I would recommend this book to people who are best friends.

    Tween girls should enjoy this fluffy novel about girls in a mother-daughter book club. The lead character, Lily, is a 12-year old who doesn't have "the baking gene," although she's a talented musician who's formed her own all-girl band. Her main worries in life seem to be whether she can make home-made goodies that are up-to-par for the monthly book club meetings, and whether her band will be picked to perform at the school's annual spring dance. Definitely not an angst-filled teen book, this novel is a tale of the ins-and-outs of tween girl friendship, and of course, cupcakes. Several easy recipes included

    I liked this book because all of the characters are hardworking. If they need to accomplish something they fight until they get it. They also keep their promises. The main characters can also be funny. In this story there is lots of challenges for the main character. For instance, she has to bake for the book club that they started but she can't. Whatever she makes comes out nasty. She deals with this problem until she is able to solve it. I recommend this book to people who like the Dork Diaries series.

    It is such fun to revisit old friends in books. This is the third book by Lisa Schroeder, each with a different friend as the main character. Lily can't bake but when her friend, Sophie, starts a book club and invites Lily to join, Lily says yes. But, Lily is the singer for a band that her other friends have started. Lily tries to keep both sets of friends happy: the bakers and the band while she helps organizer a surprise birthday party for Sophie. Lots of baking mishaps and friendship woes, but the story works out perfectly in the end!

    I am aware of the other books in this series, but I haven't read them. I was able to follow this story just fine anyway. Great story about a student having to learn that she can't do or be everything to all people. There were no grown-ups to swoop in and save the day for her either - she made the "mess" (which is age-appropriate for the target audience) and had to figure her own way out of it. Looking forward to recommending this one to students. [I received an electronic review copy of this book from the publisher]

    Although I have developed a penchant for high quality children's literature, Lisa Schroder's book falls more into the category of average. I read this for a Mother-Daughter Book Club. There wasn't much to it. It is cute and harmless; all the girls like it but there wasn't much in-depth discussion surrounding this book. It is recommended for kids ages 8 to 12.

  • Jonna VanWienen

    Cute book. This book has a new character as the main character. Lily is a struggling with multiple dilemmas- her band, baking disasters,and competitive rival friendships. It doesn't have a everything works out perfectly in the end message. Instead it is realistic, in the words of the chef "Whatever works."

    Even though the last two books were pretty great, I feel like this one would've been more relatable a few years ago. I guess it really just depends on every reader's personal preference. However, although I would have preferred this around sixth grade, I recommend it for anyone who liked It's Raining Cupcakes and Sprinkles and Secrets. This is a very good middle grade series.

    I thought the book Frosting and Friendships was a really good book. I liked the multiple layers of friendship and how each layer wanted her to do something different than the other layer. What I would've liked to have seen would have been some more character development in the friends and minor characters. Overall, this short read was entertaining and kept me reading.

    Great book it is about lily who tries to be a baker because her friends don't know she's not the best baker in the world and when she tries to make an amazing dessert for her friends surprise birthday party when everything goes from bad to worse when lily and her band (the dots) find out that another band is already playing. My favorite recipe from this book would have to be the strawberry cake.

    This was such a sweet story about learning to be true to your passions. Lily was a terrific character, and the treats she attempted baking--even when they didn't work out so well--always got my mouth watering. Strawberry-lime cupcakes FTW!

    Don't let the two stars fool you-- I totally enjoyed reading this book even though it was only ok, because only ok was what I was in the mood for. Gentle read for 8-12 year olds who want fluffy realistic fiction about friends, no romance.
