Cat Anderson doesn’t want much out of life. Give her a circle of friends to giggle with, a few boys to flirt with, a cute outfit and bouncy hair and she is good to go!
She especially could care less about food.
But food, it turns out, is a very big deal.
A scheduling mishap on her first day of 8th Grade lands Cat in a Culinary Arts class.
Something happens when Cat bakes, something amazing, something impossible.
Can it be true?
Or is it Bake Believe?

Bake Believe by Cori Cooper is a book aimed at teens, but is such a fun read for any age! A fun, quirky novel that took me by surprise.
Cat Anderson is such a realistic portrayl of a teenager. She’s worried about clothing, appearances, friends, crushes. I felt like she was such a well rounded character and really enjoyed following her.
This plot line is so interesting. A little magic and a lot of recipes, I was really impressed. I’d recommend giving this a read. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
Thank you to R&R Book Tours for the review copy and opportunity to honestly review on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
“Hey, Pen.” I step into the room and shut the door softly behind me.
“Hey.” She doesn’t turn away from the mirror. Her face is all scrunched up in concentration.
“You look good, you don’t even wobble when you hold that pose anymore.”
Penny grunts instead of responding with words. I know this is not the best time to bother her, but I also know she will feel much better if she eats one of these cookies.
“I made something for you.”
I hold up the plate of cookies with a huge grin, but she just sniffs. “Cookies? I can’t eat those before an audition. I will barf all over the floor.”
My smile drops. What will I do if she won’t try one? I chew my bottom lip, “Um, these are special cookies.” I wiggle the plate around while I use my best mystical, magical voice, like Robyn did.
Penny raises her eyebrows. “Do you think I’m four?”
I slump forward in defeat, “Come on Penny, just eat one. I’ll give you a dollar.”
“What?” She steps back, away from me, “You want to pay me? Why? What did you do to them?”
“Nothing,” I say, but the word comes out too stretched and kind of uncertain.
Penny crosses her arms and stares.
“Okay, fine, here’s the thing.” I jump off the bed, leaving the cookies behind, and proceed to tell Penny the entire story about our family legacy.
She doesn’t say anything, just taps her toes like I am keeping her from her warmup.
Which, I am, actually.
“This isn’t a joke, Pen. It’s for reals.”
After a long pause Penny unfolds her arms to move them to her hips. “Really? That’s the truth? It sounds like make believe.”
“That’s what I thought too,” I place my hand flat on my heart, “But, it’s the total, honest truth.”
Cori Cooper lives in the magical Arizona Mountains, which she’s pretty convinced is the setting for all the fairy tales.
Besides writing stories, she adores hanging out with her family, playing board games, hiking and baking, baking, baking. Like Cat’s family, she’s positive Cinnamon Rolls fix everything.
