Nixie Ness, Cooking Star

Third graders Nixie Ness and Grace Kenny have been best friends since they were two-years-old. They have always spent every afternoon after school at Nixie's house until Nixie's mom announces that she has a job, which means she won't be there to watch the girls after school, which means Nixie will have to go to the after-school program and Grace will be spending her afternoons at their classmate, Elyse's, house.

Nixie begrudgingly starts the after-school program, joining the cooking camp. And it turns out that the other children at cooking camp are nice, and the recipes they make are delicious. But Nixie can't really enjoy being an after-school superstar until she finds a way to overcome her jealousy about Grace and Elyse's budding friendship. Perfect for fans of Judy Moody, Ivy and Bean, and Clementine, this chapter book series opener includes a recipe for morning glory muffins.

"Mills (the Franklin School Friends series) spices things up with a turn of events that rocks Nixie’s sweet world.... Mitigating that drama is Nixie’s deepening rapport with three fellow cooking campers — perfectionist Vera, brainy Nolan, and cut-up Boogie — who expand her definition of friendship and her appreciation of differences." — Publishers Weekly
