Description

"A scrumptious gem of a story!"-Jennifer A. Nielsen, New York Times bestselling author of The False Prince for All Four Stars

In this charming sequel to All Four Stars, eleven-year-old foodie Gladys Gatsby now has her first published review under her belt and is looking forward to a quiet summer of cooking and reviewing. 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 and can't keep the other campers happy while planning lunches. The worst part is she can't seem to get away from the annoying new "celebrity" camper and sneak away for her latest assignment-finding the best hot dog in New York City. But when it turns out her hot dog assignment was a dirty trick by a jealous reviewer, Gladys's reviewing career may be over forever.

Review quote

"Give this one to foodies as well as readers looking for a fun summer tale."--School Library Journal

"Readers themselves are trying to navigate the world between being a kid and becoming an adult, making this all very relatable. The story has a solid ending, but invites you to think of what things Gladys might do next. The book is a sequel to All Four Stars, but definitely stands alone."--Children's Literature

"A quest for an outstanding hot dog that blossoms into a family bonding experience, the real sense of understanding felt between old and new friends, plus plenty of humorous mishaps along the way should appeal to younger middle school students looking for a quick read during summer break."--VOYA
