The Sweet Life of Stella Madison by Lara Zeises

Zeises, Lara M. The Sweet Life of Stella Madison, 228 pages Delacorte Press, 2009 Language PG-13 (22 swears no "F") Sexual Content-PG-13 Violence-G. Stella Madison is the daughter of two MAJOR foodies, her dad is the famous Andre Madison and her mom is a restaurant owner, but Stella's idea of a perfect meal is one you get in a greasy bag through a drive-through window. Her part-time job at her mom's restaurant makes little money and she can't afford a car. So she is always getting rides from her best friends Olivia and Kat and her adorable boyfriend Max who was perfect until he dropped the L-word-love, but soon Stella finds herself falling for the hot new intern at her mother's restaurant named Jeremy. Not too long after Stella recieves a call from a local newspaper offering her a colum with a salary hard not to take, but the only problem is she has to write about, you guessed it food! Stella frequently finds herself drooling over Jeremy, but how does Max fit into this equation and can fast-foodie Stella handle writing about food her parents would fancy? I really enjoyed this book, it was very interesting. ESSENTIAL to HS. Student Reviewer: EM
