While this specific book wasn‘t on my TBR list I almost want to count it since it was a book I specifically picked up to continue towards completion of #BBRC (MG read over 250 pgs). This was a very cute book that didn‘t make me groan. I guess because it involves family, baking, and magic. I might actually pick up the rest as I enjoyed the concept and hints at future elements.

Very sweet middle grade about a family of brujas.

Leonora is the youngest in a family with five magical daughters. She feels left out, acts out, and shenanigans ensue. Their magic is baking based so the book comes with recipes. I really enjoyed it though I kept yelling at Leo.

The theme of sisterhood and the specific type of love shared by sisters seems to be reoccurring in the media I consume right now.

When Leo discovers that her family of bakers are actually brujas with food magic, she decides she wants to get into the family business ASAP...even if she's "too young." But when she tries to help out her friend Caroline, Leo's spells go a bit awry and the girls scramble to fix them before it's too late.

Super fun read with delightful magic—readers will get hungry for sweet treats, and more stories! Can't wait for the others in the series.

Road tripping to southern Alberta today which means about a 6 hour drive with some audiobooks!

JacqMac Drive safe! The roads are pretty messy down here today. Hopefully, they melt for you. 2y

This is a fun middle grade book about 11 year old Leo, the youngest in a family of Mexican ancestry who own a bakery in a small Texas town, who finds out that her older sisters, mother, aunt, and all the females in her family for generations are brujas and have magical abilities which they bake into their bakery goodies. She feels left out of everything & secretly uses her magic even though she's too young to be initiated & trained. Hijinks ensue.

I love a good middle grade and this one was a delight. Leo and her family are brujas who own a bakery and bake magic into sweets. She‘s eleven and wants to do all that her sisters do, there‘s a good bit of snooping and sneaking around and accidental spells. All of it was fun and sweet and I love that there are recipes in the back. It gave me Coco vibes with the family element and both are set with Mexican main characters. It‘s adorable.

🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Absolutely loved this middle grade novel about Leo, a young Bruja who is navigating her newfound powers and family secrets. The dynamics of her large, loving, and hilarious family were an absolute delight to read, and I especially adored Leo's relationships with her sisters. I just want to hand this book to kids everywhere.
