Set in Madison, WI this is an easygoing book about three friends named Annie, Zoe, and Genna. Annie works for her grandmother, Louisa, in a tea shop and she has entered a scone contest. In the book she tries out different scone recipes which are also listed for the reader to try. How the three girls share their talents and work together, before they enter high school, is fun to read about. There is a book prior to this, The Teashop Girls. You might want to start with that one first, but you don't have to as this book can stand alone.

As it turns out, Derek does have funny life that is worth reading about.
