After starting a food fight, Molly and Cassie are sentenced to duty in the school cafeteria. The principal figures that working side by side will make the two teens see eye to eye. Not. Going. To, Happen. Molly and Cassie cause even more pandemonium, forcing the head lunch lady to resign. So, for their consequence (the school does not believe in punishment), they must now cook and serve the lunches for their small private school until the daily comments show an approval rating of more than 50%. Molly and Cassie discover more than the true ingredients of the "dirty dozen" recipes recycled week after week by the lunchroom staff. They also learn how to deal with one another and how to prepare simple yet good meals.
The cover, showing Molly with her electric blue hair, does not do justice to the contents of the book, I think. It is more than a fluffy meringue. It has the substance it needs to show teen relationships in all of their angst-ridden glory.
