Gladys and Aunt Lydia try one last ruse to fool her editor at the Standard, but even with her aunt s help, Gladys just can t manage the drama of middle school and a secret life.

Review quote

Praise for Stars So Sweet "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 Journalshow more
