Can a spot on a teen reality show really lead to a scholarship at an elite cooking school AND a summer romance?

Sixteen-year-old Sophie Nicolaides was practically raised in the kitchen of her family’s Italian-Greek restaurant, Taverna Ristorante. When her best friend, Alex, tries to convince her to audition for a new reality show, Teen Test Kitchen, Sophie is reluctant. But the prize includes a full scholarship to one of America's finest culinary schools and a summer in Napa, California, not to mention fame.

Once on-set, Sophie immediately finds herself in the thick of the drama—including a secret burn book, cutthroat celebrity judges, and a very cute French chef. Sophie must figure out a way to survive all the heat and still stay true to herself. A terrific YA offering--fresh, fun, and sprinkled with romance.

This just sounds soo cute and adorable and fun! I have to admit, I do like watching the odd cooking program, so the premise of this book really intrigues me! I imagine a teen cooking contest would be pretty competitive. I'm already imagining all the crazy drama backstage! The secret burn book is another plus, because Mean Girls is one of my all time favourite films (and I'm assuming this is a reference to it), so looking forward to seeing how it's done here. And of course, there's the very cute French chef... Can't wait to read this one! :D
