The Food Fight Professional

Author: Angela Ruth Strong
Publisher: Asbury Lane Publishing
March 2015
Genre: Tweener
Series: Fun-4-Hire

I, Joey Michaels, am the Food Fight Professional.

Basically this means that if food is flying in the school cafeteria, people think I’m responsible. Working at a soup kitchen as punishment shows me how I can use my reputation in a good way—to organize a “food fight” to fight hunger.

Winning the food fight wouldn’t be so hard if I didn’t have the following three problems:
1) The neighbor girl who records all my mistakes and posts them to the internet
2) Her newly adopted brothers from Haiti who don’t think wasting food is a laughing matter
3) A school principal who wants revenge for the pie I smashed in her face

If I can keep from making too big a mess in the kitchen this time around, I just might be able to have my pie and eat it too. 

THE FOOD FIGHT PROFESSIONAL is the third book in Ms. Strong’s Fun 4 Hire series for tweens and it is as fun as the second one. I didn’t read the first, but I can imagine it’s fun, too.

Joey starts out with good motivations. A food fight to earn money for a good cause—not to waste food. And really, it’s more of a chili cook-off than a food fight. But when the media gets involved and the grand prize involves a Disney cruise, Joey is in it for the prize. Will Joey get his motivation fixed by the end of the book? Plenty of funny (and scary) moments later, you’ll know.

If you have a tweener who loves to read, then THE FOOD FIGHT PROFESSIONAL will be a good book to download.

5 stars. Available in ebook. 116 pages.
