My Opinion: This is a very captivating book, full of excitement and the most enticing of situations. It keeps the mind on a moving roller coaster, the ups and downs of a young girl trying to express her creative side through cooking. I personally enjoy cooking and baking, and my parents are chefs, so for me this book was something I could relate to.
The book itself is about an eleven year old girl with a passion and talent for cooking. Her parents however are fiercely against any use of the kitchen, sending main character Gladys on a frenzy around New York. Her need to cook has her sneaking out of the theater to secretly taste cupcakes for a fancy food reviewer, hiding her identity from everyone, and making new friends. Those who enjoy food, secret missions, and crazy kid cleverness will totally love this book, as I did. This was a really fun read, with a hint of wittiness about it! Tara Dairman's writing is a joy to read and I am anticipating the sequel.
