Candymakers by Wendy Mass

Cover Image

From the Publisher: "Four children have been chosen to compete in a national competition to find the tastiest confection in the country. Who will invent a candy more delicious than the Oozing Crunchorama or the Neon Lightning Chew?  Logan, the Candymaker's son, who can detect the color of chocolate by touch alone? Miles, the boy who is allergic to merry-go-rounds and the color pink? Daisy, the cheerful girl who can lift a fifty-pound lump of taffy like it's a feather? Or Philip, the suit-and-tie wearing boy who's always scribbling in a secret notebook?"

Publisher: Little, Brown, 2010, 453 pp.

  1. I thought that the Candymakers was really gripping. What made it so gripping was that Wendy Mass, the author, convinces you that someone else did the crime but really it's not who you would think. Also, the format of the story was interesting because there are separate chapters for each of the characters. You would be reading the story from Logan's point of view and then the next chapter would be from Daisy's point of view but the same story. Also, there are not just one but FOUR main characters. I would highly recommend this book!
