Part 3 of the All Four Stars series.

							As the summer winds down and Gladys Gatsby prepares to start middle school, she is nervous about juggling schoolwork and looming deadlines from her secret job as the New York Standard’s youngest restaurant critic. When her editor pushes for a face-to-face meeting to discuss more opportunities with the paper, Gladys knows she must finally come clean to her parents. But her perfectly planned reveal is put on hold when her parents arrive home with a surprise: her Aunt Lydia, one of the only adults who know her secret, fresh off the plane from  Paris. Gladys and Aunt Lydia try one last ruse to fool her editor at the Standard, but Gladys just can’t manage the drama of middle school and a secret life.

"Dairman manages to blend an overabundance of ingredients into a tasty dish that series fans should eat up." - Kirkus Reviews

"This book will appeal to a wider audience than others in the series, as it is less about evaluating restaurants and food and more about finding one's place and learning how to deal with problems. It can easily be enjoyed as a stand-alone read." - School Library Journal
