Alexis is the clear leader of the group. She's organized, punctual, and happy to take on the stuff like scheduling, budgets, invoicing, and the things that the other girls in the CC don't really want to do. In other words, the "unfun" things. One day, in a burst of feeling unappreciated, Alexis informs the Cupcake Club that she is no longer "in charge." But when deadlines get missed and supplies aren't bought, the girls realizes somebody definitely needs to be the leader. And Alexis realizes being the leader is kind of cool; as long as you know when to ask for help when you need it!
Coco Simon always dreamed of opening a cupcake bakery but she's afraid she would eat all the profits. When she's not daydreaming about cupcakes, Coco edits children's books and has written close to 100 books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes she's eaten. Cupcake Diaries is the first time Coco has mixed her love of cupcakes with writing.
