Six top YA novels about the joy of food

At the BN Teen Blog Eric Smith tagged six top food-filled YA novels, including:
Cake Pop Crush, by Suzanne Nelson

The first book in Nelson’s Wish series, all of which deal with food, Cake Pop Crush introduces readers to Alicia, a teen who has grown up around Say It With Flour most of her life. It’s a small bakery run by her dad, that’s very much in a You’ve Got Mail–style battle with Perk Up, a major café chain that has opened right across the street.

Also see: There are a bundle of food-related books in this series, with increasingly hilarious titles, including Macarons at Midnight, Hot Cocoa Hearts, You’re Bacon Me Crazy, and Donut Go Breaking My Heart.
