Cyril Bartholomew is in love with his lab partner, Rose Mulligan.
However, Cyril is a little on the heavy side, and Rose only sees him as
a friend. Cyrils chubbiness also causes him to keep his love of
cooking a secret. Then, Cyrils best friend, Nick, moves back in town
after two years. Nick woos Rose with Cyrils kitchen-sink cookies and
claims that he made them. Before long, Cyril is creating gourmet meals
for Rose while Nick takes all the credit.


Story-wise, Flavor of the Week is a pretty ordinary novel.
Shaw takes a typical loser boy, a typical pretty girl, and a typical
best friend to create a love triangle. Nothing special, right? However,
the inclusion of food in the novel created for a fun and pleasant read.
Before I start, I might be a little biased because I love all things food, but I found it to be a creative add that, frankly, saved the novel from being a complete bore.


My favorite inclusion of food was Cyrils audition to the American
Institute of Culinary Arts, but even that was slightly predictable.
Another thing I liked was that a recipe was included at the end of
chapter. While most of these recipes were not simple, I think a teen
could prepare most of them. Personally, I want to try to the
kitchen-sink cookies.


While Flavor of the Week was a predictable read, I still
enjoyed it. At 200 pages, with many of these pages consisting of
recipes, it is also a quick read, so what have you got to lose?

The main character in this book is Cyril Bartholomew. Cyril is a wonderful chef. In the book he has a major crush on this girl, Rose and thinks that everything's going great until his best friend, Nick comes to town. Nick knows how well Cyril cooks but Rose doesn't. Nick and Rose like each other and start dating. Nick asks Cyril's help to cook and takes the credit for it. Unfortunately, in the end they both get caught and Rose is very mad at Cyril for lying to her this whole time. At the end of each chapter there's a recipe of the food mentioned it that particular chapter.
