The Stars of Summer


Formats & editions


This entertaining sequel is a rollicking summertime adventure through New York City with all of the charm of All Four Stars – and even more foodie flavor! 

After successfully completing her first restaurant review for the New York Standard newspaper, Gladys Gatsby is looking forward to a quiet summer of cooking and eating.  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, fails to keep the other campers happy while planning lunches, and cannot seem to get away from the annoying new 'celebrity' camper.  Worst of all, there's no time to sneak away for her latest reviewing assignment: finding the best hot dog in New York City. 
This entertaining sequel is a rollicking summertime adventure through New York City with all of the charm of All Four Stars – and even more foodie flavor!
