This is a book I want all the teenagers in my life to read to learn the meaning of love. True love is kind, unselfish, forgiving and hopeful. The Cupcake Girl's adorable characters demonstrate each of these qualities. I wish I could have listened to this book. Instead I devoured each page, unable to put this book down to give the other chores in my life needed attention until I finished the very last page.
I was lucky enough to read this book recently and absolutely loved it. it is such a sweet story and I would recommend it to anyone. I could relate to the characters and found myself rooting for them along the way. The story covers an array of subjects such as growing up, friendships, falling in love, hardships, loss and fighting for what matters. It has a sweet message, was clean cut, well written and trust me, you won't be able to put it down. five stars !!!!
This was a delightful fun read that captures the angst, excitement and emotions of adolescence so well. It is fun to watch the characters strengthen their friendship as they matured. There are many good topics for thought as well including love, friendship, religion and study.
This book is a great read for anyone who enjoys well-developed characters in a YA romance. From page one, the story's action grabs the reader. (I got hooked and read the book in one day!) The language and emotions of Max and Lexie are so true-to-life... the author really understands the teen perspective and readers will want to find out how the relationship between Max and Lexie develops and blossoms.
Reading Cupcake Girl reminded me of first love; the anticipation, excitement and nervousness. Experiencing this love through Max and Lexie made them feel like friends. I chastised them for their pride and misunderstandings cheered them on as they developed and grew, and was happy for progress in their relationship. I just had to keep reading to make sure all ended well! Thanks for stirring up the memories and for a fun read!
What a heart-warming book! My personal conversion story to the LDS Church has a few similarities with this book, so I enjoyed this sweet reminder. I'm 29 years old, but admittedly, young adult romance is my favorite genre! I finished this quick read in 2 days. And this is a CLEAN romance so there's nothing here that you'll blush to have your children read.
I liked the best friend relationship that Max and Lexie shared. And their comic book past and present was such a cute idea. Max is the narrator, and his teenage emotions feel so authentic; I remember feeling such exhilarating highs and depressing lows regarding crushes in high school. The characters make mistakes and are able to overcome them. This book also has a great twist that kept me hooked. I loved the epilogue showing how much Max and Lexie each grew during the following year. A faithful happily ever after!
This book is such a clean, inspiring story of young love and finding personal faith.
