I want to be a member of the Teashop Girls. Annie is the greatest friend ever. She also has a lot of enthusiasm and passion for tea. I know I will be looking for Laura Schaefer's next novel, The Secret Ingredient. I just hope it continues with Annie's life, possibly in High School.
This story is about Annie who loves her Steeping Leaf shop. It isn't hers. It's her grandmothers. She practically lives there throughout the story. Anyways, the SL is at the verge of shutting down because not a lot of customers come to have tea, so Annie comes with creative ways to get the place hot and popular. In the end, things work out. I'll let you read the book to find out. I won't give too much away.
I knew this story was going to start to grow on me because Annie has two great friends, Genna and Zo. I also want friends like them too. I do have great friends. Can't say I don't. But this book is a must read for friend and tea lovers.
This book also has great clippings related to tea, recipes, tea party ideas, facts about tea from different places, and discussion questions. It really is a blend of different tastes.
I can't find one bad thing to say about this book because I enjoyed it 100% percent. I also liked the writing. It was simple and too the point. It was easy to understand and fun at the same time with the other things the author corporated. I highly recommend this book. I give it 5 out of 5. 5 Star rating.
