The Sweet Life of Stella Madison
Deborah Stevenson Zeises, Lara M. The Sweet Life of Stella Madison. Madison is a famous French chef, while Mrs. Madison amiably separated from but still close to her husband runs a showcase kitchen for visiting chefs. Seventeen-year-old Stella Madison, however, is more interested in boys than braising: She's challenged, though, when a newspaper gives her a summer internship with the intention that she'll trade on the Madison name and write about food herself.
This is basically chick-lit en croute, and there's enjoyment in the frothy tale of Stella's sorting out her simultaneous interest in two hunky guys and some originality in the fact that she ends up on her own rather than with either of them. And I did try to connect to Stella, feel sorry for her situation and sympathize. I just fucking couldn't. Who would want to listen to this whiny bitch? Anyway, that is all. If you want to avoid your brain cells from burning up, please avoid this book.

I thought her relationships and feelings toward them were very realistic and well-written. I liked her friends and was glad to see that she had two such close friends-a lot of times YA novels seem to skimp on the female friendship front Alliteration! Personally I found Max more desirable than Jeremy but at the end, she is not officially with either and I was satisfied with this.
Stella grows, forming a friendship with Jeremy, accepting the divorce, and welcoming the new people in her parents' lives.

I loved the character of Jeremy, Stella's mother's young intern. What a charmer, but he really understood Stella I felt.

I liked this book and found it to be a light but entertaining read. Stella is a fairly relatable character, going through the normal teenage experiences. What I couldn't get behind was her inability to make decisions including choosing between the two boys who like her.
She has a couple of great best friends who help make the book more enjoyable, however. And she does learn and grow as a character throughout the book, so that's good. While the story was cute enough, it's not going to be something that I think about or want to read again. Nov 05, P. Stella Madison's life is sweet, in a crazy confusing way.
