Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "When Mia reads about a Design-a-Dress contest in a magazine for "budding designers ages 12-16" she is excited. But she doesn't realize how much work designing--and sewing--a dress truly is until she starts on her contest entry. While Mia stresses out about all the work she has to do, she and Katie have an argument about, of all things, fashion preferences! Katie offers suggestions that don't really go with the outfit Mia has in mind. And when Mia makes (what she thinks) is an offhand joke about Katie's fashion sense, it turns into a full-blown argument" --
Author Notes

From cupcakes to ice cream! Having written over thirty books about middle school girls and cupcakes, Coco Simon decided it was time for a change; so she’s switched her focus from cupcakes to her second favorite sweet treat: ice cream! When she’s not daydreaming about yummy snacks, Coco edits children’s books and has written close to one hundred books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes and ice cream cones she’s eaten. She is the author of the Cupcake Diaries and the Sprinkle Sundays series. 

Abigail Halpin is an illustrator/graphic designer living in New England who likes bright colors, all things retro, and sharp pencils.
