Penny isn't sure what will happen with her family. And in this small town, her life wasn't exactly how she expected it would be. A popular girl named Charity, pulls pranks on unexpected people almost daily. Penny quickly befriends sweet and independent Tally. There is also Marcus, who is mysterious and always running on the beach. Then Penny is finally settling into Hog's Hollow, when her parents want to make a decision that could change her life.
This book was really cute. Penny was a cute character. She had a cute voice and was a lot of fun. I loved Tally and Blake with their Rock, Paper, Scissors society, and both had such a fun personality. Marcus was an interesting character, but I didn't see the appeal of him. The plot was fun. I love baking, so seeing a Cupcake bakery was a lot of fun. I also loved the theory about jolly ranchers and how your personality matches that flavor. Hepler is a great writer that knows how to make a sweet and cute book that is just a fun read...
