Recipe for friendship: mix four very different girls, one boy, and a camp counselor. Add cookies.
When her four campers don’t get along, counselor Hannah has an idea. They gather in the kitchen at the Moonlight Ranch Summer Camp. There, they measure, mix, stir, and bake. As they bite into their warm sugar cookies, they finally seem to be friends.
But summer doesn’t last forever. And if the bond is going to survive the long school year, these kids will need a plan, a plan that just might require cookies.
Complete with recipes, this book will satisfy every reader’s craving for something sweet—just like a homemade sugar cookie.

Praise For The Secret Cookie Club…
— School Library Journal
The smooth writing and quick pacing make the pages fly by, as does Freeman’s clever technique of leaving each girl’s story unfinished until her letter to the next girl clears up loose ends. Particularly touching is Emma’s letter to Olivia about her older brother who died before Emma was born. Hand this to the BFFs who aren’t quite ready for Brashares’ The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
