All Gladys wants to do is to cook and write about what she cooks. This is her passion. Why else would she review every single meal she’s had for the last two years? But it’s hard to find a meal worth reviewing when you live in East Dumpsford and all the restaurants are cheap, greasy, and disgusting. Not to mention that your parents don’t follow a recipe and microwave all their meals! With help from her friend and neighbor, Sandy, Gladys works on a plan that might help her realize her dream- of becoming a restaurant critic for The New York Standard Times.
This book was a very fun read. I liked Gladys’s journal entries because she describes the gross food that she eats with humor that I thoroughly enjoyed. I also loved reading about the adults in this book that supported Gladys to follow her dreams. Even though this is a tiny detail, the page decorations added a nice touch. I would give this book all four stars!
