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?

Dieting is war, and it's one society continues to lose despite the multi-billion dollar industry the "battle of the bulge" has become.Based upon a simple Power Point created by General Colin Powell to mold leaders on the battlefield and in boardrooms, The Four-Star Diet teaches us how to end our dieting woes and wars within our own kitchens. It arms readers with the necessary artillery to find lasting happiness as the leaders in their own lives while enjoying four-star fare with the confidence and control of a four-star general.Considered the intelligent person's guide to eating and living, The Four-Star Diet stonewalls treating its readers like the vegetables other diet books do. It won't tell the reader what to eat or recommend the best diet for her; rather, this book recognizes, salutes, and supports the reader's experience and attempts at dieting in the past while placing and keeping her in the best frame of mind for dieting success in the future. And it does so cleverly, sensibly, and humorously by combining the wisdom of General Colin Powell with that of additionally, incredible leaders, including names such as Abraham Lincoln, Marilyn Monroe, Malcolm X, Mahatma Gandhi, Henry Ford, and even Dr. Seuss as well as enlisting personal accounts of the author's own life.

Gladys and Aunt Lydia try one last ruse to fool her editor at the Standard, but even with her aunt’s help, Gladys just can’t manage the drama of middle school and a secret life.
