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.-Goodreads

My Thoughts
This book sounds like a really great contemporary read! I haven't really read any YA books about cooking so I am interested to see how the author adds that in!! The romance in this book also sounds really great! I can't wait to check this one out :)

Well..what do you think of my choice?? What are you waiting for this week?? Comment below and leave me some links!!

I love contemporary books and this one sounds really cute and fun. I also like the idea of cooking being involved in the book. Great pick :)

Great pick! I am really excited for this one! It sounds good and I love the title! I have really gotten into contemporary lately and I haven't read any that involve cooking either.

For some reasons it took forever this time to load, so all I saw was the URL and no content except a "loading"-bar and I was like "Pizza Love? Pizza. Love. I want this book. Whatever it is really about, whatever the genre is or the cover looks like. I need it." and now that I have seen the rest I'm even more convinced that I should buy it! Thank you so very much for sharing this one! <3

I am with you, this one sounds great! Love big loud family based YA, like Ella's in The Fine Art of Truth or Dare, this looks like it might be similar. Great pick!
