Recipe for a delicious sequel to All Four Stars:
Take one ambitious (and now slightly more mature) heroine…
Load up her lobster backpack…
Pack her off to the very last place on earth where she wants to spend the summer…
Assign her to review one of her least favorite foods…
The Stars of Summer
a sequel to All Four Stars, coming on May 5, 2015!
It’s not easy being an undercover restaurant critic—especially when you’re only twelve years old!
After successfully completing her first restaurant review for the New York Standard newspaper, Gladys Gatsby is looking forward to a quiet summer of cooking and eating. But her plans quickly go awry when her friend Charissa Bentley delivers Gladys’s birthday gift: a free summer at Camp Bentley.
As Gladys feared, camp life is not easy; she struggles to pass her swim test, can’t keep the other campers happy while planning lunches, and cannot seem to get away from the annoying new “celebrity” camper. The worst part is she’s not able to find a moment to sneak away for her latest reviewing assignment: finding the best hot dog in New York City. But when Gladys learns that her hot dog assignment might actually be a dirty trick made up by a jealous fellow critic, she fears her reviewing career could be over forever.
This perfectly plotted sequel brings readers on a rollicking summertime adventure through New York City with all of the charm of All Four Stars—and even more foodie flavor!
