Sweet and Sour Summer by Diane Muldrow.
Muldrow, Diane Sweet and Sour Summer, pgs. 143 Grosset and Dunlap (Penguin). Language- G; Sexual Content- G; Violence- G; Molly, Amanda, Natasha, Shawn and Elisabeth started a cooking service last summer, but this year everyone is somewhere else and nobody can manage it. Molly is at Cape Cod with Jason, Amanda is at acting camp. Shawn is at cheerleading camp. Everyone has their ups and downs. I think that this book would be really good if there were more action. I also think that the author could include more information on what the cooking service is and how it started. EL - OPTIONAL. Student Reviewer: SH
FYI - This is book number 9 in the Dish series, but the only one that this student reviewer has read. There are now 3 title in the series, and all are published in paper. It would be a great, swet series for a large elementary collection, for the public library, or for a young aspiring chef. - CM
