ABOUT THE BOOK
Love Sugar Magic: A Mixture of Mischief by Anna Meriano. 
Walden Pond Press, 2020. Release date 2/4/20
“There’s power in something passed down through the generations.”
It’s spring break in Rose Hill, Texas, but Leo Logroño has a lot of work to do if she’s going to become a full-fledged bruja like the rest of her family.
She still hasn’t discovered the true nature of her magical abilities, and that isn’t the only bit of trouble in her life: Her family’s baking heirlooms have begun to go missing, and a new bakery called Honeybees has opened across town, threatening to run Amor y Azúcar right out of business.
What’s more, everyone around her seems to have secrets, and none of them want to tell Leo what’s going on.
But the biggest secret of all comes when Leo is paid a very surprising visit—by her long-lost Abuelo Logroño. Abuelo promises answers to her most pressing questions and tells Leo he can teach her about her power, about what it takes to survive in a world where threats lurk in the shadows. But can she trust him?
Review


A little bit of sugar, A little bit of baking,
A little bit of... magic. 
The third installment of Love Sugar Magic: A Mixture of Mischief  is one that takes their bakery to a whole new situation.
What my 5th grade students are saying: 
"I never thought that baking and magic could go together at all, but it makes a lot of sense. I really like how her magic comes to be very important to get a grip on in this new story."
"The determination that I see in Leo makes me feel like I can bake anything...even if I am not a witch."
"I 100% felt her frustration when all the adults were telling her not to worry. Sometimes as kids, we still worry, and a lot." 
"Even though my sister and I fight, I definitely think we would've been just like Leo and Isabel and even with my best friend thrown in like Caroline, we would've been working like superheroes to save the bakery." 
"I think if you like magic and baking and your family, you should read this book!" 
"Being from Texas, I'm recommending this to everyone!!"
