ALL FOUR STARS

All four stars to the book. All Four Stars by Tara Dairman is a humorous book every middle grader must read. It’s the story of a girl Gladys, who has a passion for cooking but is banned from her kitchen because of a crème brûlée incident, which had resulted in a minor fire. But after being mistakenly contacted to write a restaurant review for one of the largest newspapers in the world, she needs a plan to sneak into the New York City, without anyone knowing her identity as a food critic.

The book’s narrative is so strong that when you’re reading it, it runs like a movie in your head. It’s a really funny book with characters you can relate to. For instance, the protagonist herself is a typical pre-teen who keeps getting into trouble but always finds her way out. The author successfully manages to keep the reader engrossed with the story and it’s funny dialogues. The book ends with a twist and is a must read for all the foodies. It ends like an American television serial, where you’re left wanting for Season two. The book has two recipes at the end, with one of them being our very own gajar ka halwa. There are a total of three books in the series. I can’t wait for the other two!
