About the Author

Martha Freeman worked as a reporter and teacher before becoming a full-time writer of books for young readers, including the Edgar Award-nominated Zap!, Born Curious, The Secret Cookie Club series, Who Stole Halloween?, and Effie Starr Zook Has One More Question, which School Library Journal called "accessible and exciting" in a starred review. She also collaborated with NASA astronaut Mark Kelly on the Astrotwins books. Martha lives in Oregon. Learn more at


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.--The Bulletin "September 2015 "
Like a younger version of Ann Brashares's "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," this book details how the girls bake and send each other cookies at what turn out to be critical times in the school year. . . . The variety of families depicted is refreshing. The four protagonists are of different races and are part of a variety of realistic family situations; some have siblings, some are only children, some have single parents. All of them are navigating sixth grade and learning about themselves and others. Recipes are included. . . . Readers will enjoy getting to know the campers from Flowerpot Cabin and baking--and tasting--the included cookie recipes.--School Library Journal
