The Sweet Life of Stella Madison

The Sweet Life of Stella Madison by Lara M. Zeises is the story of food and finding your own way.

Stella Madison's parents are both chefs. Her father is rather famous and has his own restaurant. Her mother is also a well-known chef and the owner of The Open Kitchen - a gourmet kitchen where guest chefs come to teach patrons how to make the food they are about to eat.
Stella's favorite restaurant is Burger King. She doesn't understand foodies. When they talk she just tunes out. But when the local newspaper calls her about a summer internship she cannot pass up the chance to earn enough money for a car - even if they want her to be a restaurant reviewer.

Zeises has written a delicious novel of finding your own voice. Stella is a compelling character to whom readers will relate. Just don't start the book while hungry!
