In the town of Spring Haven, four children have been selected to compete in the national candymaking contest of a lifetime. Who will make a candy more delicious than the Oozing Crunchorama or the Neon Yellow Lightning Chew? Logan? The candymaker's son, who can detect the colour of chocolate by feel alone? Miles? The boy allergic to rowboats and the colour pink? Daisy? The cheerful girl who can lift a fifty-pound lump of taffy as if it were a feather? Philip? the suit-and-tie-wearing boy who's always scribbling in a secret notebook? The contestants face off in a battle of wits and sugar, but soon they realise that things are not what they seem, and they find themselves in a candy-filled world of surprises, suspense, and mouthwatering creations. In this charming and cleverly crafted story, award-winning author Wendy Mass cooks up a delectable concoction of mystery, friendship, and juicy revelations.
