Tween Tuesday: Just Add Magic

Tween Tuesday was started by GreenBeanTeenQueen. In it we share books that would be great for the tween set, ages 9-12.

This week I'm sharing:

Just Add Magic by Cindy Callaghan

I think this looks like a super cute read. The cover reminds me a lot of It's Raining Cupcakes by Lisa Schroeder. I've had several girls love that one, and I think that even thought this one is different it would have the same appeal as It's Raining Cupcakes. I plan on adding this to my classroom library.

From Cindy Callaghan's Website (click to visit it!)

When Kelly Quinn and her two BFFs discover a dusty old cookbook while cleaning out her attic, the girls decide to try a few of the mysterious recipes inside. But the ancient book bears an eerie warning, and it doesn't take long for the girls to realize that their dishes are linked to strange occurances. The Keep 'Em Quiet Cobbler actually silences Kelly's pesky little brother and the Hexberry Tarta brings an annoying curse to mean girl Charlotte Barney. And there is the Love Bug Juice, which seems to have quite the effect on those cute Rusamano boys...

Could these receipes really be magical? Who wrote them and where did they come from. And most importantly, what kind of trouble are the girls stirring up for themselves? Things are about to get just a little too hot in Kelly Quinn's kitchen.

Also, Just Add Magic is the Rockin' Reads book at Justice for the month of November.
