We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be hosting the official blog tour for All Four Stars by Tara Dairman! As you know, we only host tours for books we really love, and this particular middle grade book is right up my alley: it’s about a girl who becomes the youngest food critic for a New York Times-type paper, and when I finished it I was totally charmed and totally HUNGRY. Seriously, if you have a love for food at all, you will appreciate this book so much. It’s also funny, sweet, full of diverse characters and food, and enjoyable for both kids and adults who love kid lit.
Tour Dates: July 1st – July 10th, 2014
Blog stops will be provided with egalleys, a shared Rafflecopter for giveaways of finished copies, and exclusive content for their tour dates. Author-generated content is limited, but we will also have additional review stops for those who can accept e-galleys, so don’t be shy about letting us know if you’re open to receiving a review copy.
This is a terrific debut, and it’s one of those titles that can really benefit from word of mouth, so I hope you’ll sign up ASAP if you’re interested, as our tours tend to fill up pretty quickly. More general information on our tours and how we select participants may be found on our TMG Tour Page, where you may also find the link to be added to our general blogger database. I’ll be using that database to invite some bloggers for this particular tour as well, and will obviously be keeping an eye out for active blogs that are middle-grade friendly, as well as bloggers who are foodies.
All Four Stars by Tara Dairman
“A scrumptious gem of a story!”—Jennifer A. Nielsen, New York Times bestselling author of The False Prince
Meet Gladys Gatsby: New York’s toughest restaurant critic. (Just don’t tell anyone that she’s in sixth grade.)
Gladys Gatsby has been cooking gourmet dishes since the age of seven, only her fast-food-loving parents have no idea! Now she’s eleven, and after a crème brûlée accident (just a small fire), Gladys is cut off from the kitchen (and her allowance). She’s devastated but soon finds just the right opportunity to pay her parents back when she’s mistakenly contacted to write a restaurant review for one of the largest newspapers in the world.
But in order to meet her deadline and keep her dream job, Gladys must cook her way into the heart of her sixth-grade archenemy and sneak into New York City—all while keeping her identity a secret! Easy as pie, right?
