I really liked how this book was a mystery and an adventure. This setting of this book was enchanting and really likable. I also liked the ending and the fact that it actually ended. I would love another book of this type. It reminded me of "The Gollywhopper Games" and that was one of my favorite books!I would reccomend this book to everyone! ( )

Semi-perminant?

I made it through a few chapters, but it just didn't catch my attention quick enough and it had holds. I may go back to it in the future.

The Confectionary Association’s annual contest is approaching, and four kid contestants are preparing their new candy at Life is Sweet candy factory. Each of the four has his or her own reason for entering the contest, but they may not be what you expect. The author uses sections to tell the events leading up to the contest from four people’s point of view: Logan, the sweet, honest son of the Candymaker; shy and quirky Miles; friendly but inexplicably strong Daisy; and aloof, snooty Philip. Just when you think you have the characters mostly figured out, another secret unfolds that causes you to want to read just a little bit more. In fact, reading the book is a lot like eating your favorite candy – once you start, it’s hard to stop!

One thing I appreciated about this book was that it reminded me not to make up my mind about people before getting to know them.

Keep an eye out for the butterfly that appears throughout the story – what do you think it means to each character and to the larger story?

The Candymakers will appeal to readers who like to be surprised with completely new twists and who enjoy reading mystery mixed with humor. ( )

Logan lives in a candy factory. His dad and granddad are candymakers. This year their company is sponsoring 4 kids for the annual candy invention contest. Logan is one of the contestants along with Miles, Daisy and Philip. In order to prepare for the contest, they are participating in two days of tours and classes so they can each make a unique candy to wow the judges.

Now for the details. The story is divided up into 5 parts. Each of the contestants explains his side of what went down over those two days. Logan is first. He is the candymaker's son and everyone expects him to win. He is quiet, but an excellent host. He has a scar on his face. He mentions that his father used to have yearly picnics for fans, but when he and another kid were tossing a toy truck that landed in a vat of chocolate, the picnics ended. This becomes an important piece of information later in the story.

Next is Miles. He is a little odd. He talks about the afterlife a lot and sometimes talks backwards. He genuinely wants to win. Part of why he is odd is that he had a traumatic experience a year earlier when he was in a boat with his parents and a girl dived under the water and never came back up. He feels responsible that he saw her and didn't save her in time.

Next is Daisy. The thing about Daisy is that she is really a kid spy. A company has hired her to steal the secret ingredient that makes the candy so good. None of the other contestants know this about her. The other contestants think she's happy and sweet. Although they do notice that she has impressive athletic ability.

Last is Philip. Philip is the rich kid who insults everyone and acts like he really doesn't want to be there. He shows up both days wearing a suit and carrying a notebook, which he is always writing in. The story with him is that he is the kid who had the toy truck many years ago. He has a grudge against Logan's family because they said he could come back to play with Logan, but they never invited him. He doesn't care about winning the contest. He just doesn't want Logan to win. He thinks no one recognizes him, but when a factory employee does, and they talk, Philip changes his mind about the contest which sets off a chain reaction of events that shows how everyone is connected. This is the mystery.

I enjoyed the book quite a bit. I loved the way the author tells the same story from four different perspectives. There aren't a lot of good kid mysteries that aren't mixed with fantasy. This one is grounded in realism. No ghosts. No magic. I think kids will like it, although it's a little on the long side. The best way I can describe it is to say it's a little bit [b: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory|6310|Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie Bucket, #1)|Roald Dahl|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1309211401s/6310.jpg|2765786] and a little bit Kids Cooking Championship on Food Network.
