She asks her grandmother for a job as a barista. Annie soaks up the atmosphere. She loves her job, especially as she gets to flirt with her cute co-worker.
Before long, she realizes the Steeping Leaf is in trouble - big trouble. Annie's grandmother might be in danger of closing her shop. Annie vows not to let that happen. She attempts rallies her friends and the neighborhood together to save the shop.
Will their efforts be enough to save the Steeping Leaf?
My Thoughts: A cute book. I'm glad the story will be continuing. I liked learning more about tea. The illustrations add to the book's charm. I love the friendship between the girls and how it's changing as they grow older. I love the atmosphere of the Steeping Leaf. I wish I knew a shop just like it. And I simply adore the idea of the Teashop Girls - a club that meets for tea weekly!
Cover Thoughts: This is the paperback cover and it works well. I like it much better than the Hardback cover - however, there's a sketch inside of the tea shop that would love amazing as the cover. I wish they chose that one instead.
