A delicious confection for Sarah Dessen fans.
In the world of Sheridan Wells, life is perfect when she’s decorating a cake. Unfortunately, everything else is a complete mess: her mom ran off years ago, her dad is more interested in his restaurant, and the idea of a boyfriend is laughable.
But Sheridan is convinced finding her mom will solve all her problems—only her dad’s about to get a cooking show in New York, which means her dream of a perfect family will be dashed.
Using just the right amount of romance, family drama, and cute boys, The Sweetest Thing will entice fans with its perfect mixture of girl-friendly ingredients.

Delicious! What a sweet book. Oh, I’m so punny. Ignore the cheese. What I mean to say is that this was a totally delightful contemporary read.
Sheridan Wells is a hot mess, but lord the girl sure does try. She’s coping with boy troubles, school dramarama, a runaway mother and a father who’s threatening to pack them up and move to New York City to film a reality series. And I totally enjoyed every minute of it.
Plus, I was also thrilled to see the book lived up the cover – much of The Sweetest Thing centers on cake decorating, bakeries, pastries and more. Yum!
Fans of Sarah Dessen will enjoy this one.
