"Likable Nixie creates a terrific recipe for winning back old friends and making lots of new ones."--Kirkus Reviews

"Young readers will easily relate to this wholesome look at early friendships and conflicts." --School Library Journal

"Claudia Mills handles the tricky subject of friendship gracefully. Young readers will relate well to the feelings Nixie experiences while figuring out what friendship is and how to keep it." --School Library Connection

"Humorous vignettes from cooking class lighten the story, with the kids Nixie meets there gently helping her to both figure out how to broaden her friend group and discover the power of apologies, grand gestures, and honest conversation. Expressive black-and-white illustrations give newer chapter-book readers time to pause and process the events and maybe consider their own friendship dramas." --The Horn Book
