{Synopsis} – Tessa loves working at the trendy food truck her aunt runs in their native San Francisco. Whipping up creative treats, serving yummy BLTs to her classmates after school… Tessa feels like she’s living the dream. Then the dream turns into a nightmare. Popular, arrogant Asher starts working at the truck! He can’t make a sandwich to save his life, and on top of it all, he’s frustratingly cute. But when the city’s big food truck festival is canceled, the future of the truck is suddenly at stake. Tessa and Asher will have to set aside their differences and work together to save the truck. With the help of her friends, some cooking tricks, and her secret weapon — bacon! — can Tessa turn things around? And will she finally admit to herself how she really feels…about Asher?

{My thoughts} – Tessa isn’t your average tween. She has a job working with her Aunt on her Aunt’s food truck. This causes her to have a daily power struggle with her self, because she always wants to cook or work on coming up with new recipes instead of doing her homework.

She has a best friend named Mei and they both go through a sort of fight within their friendship brought on by Mei’s new interest in boys. Tessa doesn’t totally get it until she starts working on the food truck with another peer named Asher. All of the sudden boys start making more sense to her, although still very much confusing.

This whole book is based on whether or not the food truck they work on is going to be able to take part in the yearly Flavorfest. This is a friendly competition where all the food trucks compete to see who has the best food and get awarded as well. Anyways, Asher’s mom is dating the business tycoon that wants to put an end to Flavorfest and it is up to Tessa and Asher to try and save the day kind of thing.

I think that any child that has a dream of making a difference can relate to this book. I highly recommend it for children that have an interest in cooking. In the back of the book is a list of the recipes talked about within the pages of the book.

I really enjoyed reading this book, although it took me longer to read it then I would have liked. I look forward to reading the next book in the series very soon!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
