Molly Ollinger can’t stand perky Cassie Birchmeyer. When they are forced to collaborate on a school project, their bickering escalates into a food fight in the Sunshine Day School cafeteria. But because Sunshine Day isn’t your average high school, the girls’ punishment isn’t detention—it’s to work in the cafeteria as lunch ladies. Ewww. They’ll have to cook up a way to get along in order to get themselves out of the kitchen. Seasoned with hilarious original songs, slams on traditional school-lunch menus, not to mention downright tasty recipes, Hot Lunch is the best thing to hit school lunch since Tater Tots

Blue-haired, earphone-wearing, loner Molly and blonde, bubbly, athletic Cassie are just about polar opposites on the sophomore social scale, so it¿s no wonder they end up on the serving side of the lunch line as a consequence of fighting over a joint English assignment. Their continued animosity leads to a food fight in the school kitchen that prompts the cafeteria lady to quit and they suddenly find themselves on active lunch duty ¿ not just serving, but creating menus and cooking as well. If they can get the majority of the student body at their small, quirky private school to vote in favor of their food over the canned, fried and bland lunch lady¿s they can regain their freedom. There¿s only one problem, neither one of them knows how to cook. Their hilarious efforts to gain control of the kitchen bring not only Molly and Cassie together, but an assorted team of unusual characters as well. Bradley¿s style is zippy, witty and lots of fun, and he includes some recipes to try out for yourself.

Molly is a loner and she likes it that way. She goes out of her way to alienate her classmates, but it ends up getting her in trouble with the new girl, Cassie. Their food fights and arguements lead to the lunch lady quitting, and they must now provide lunch for the school. Their "punishment" will last until their lunches are better than the former lunchlady's. A funny, light-hearted read. They learn to compromise and get along and that sometimes simpler is better.

When a food fight leads the lunch lady to quit, 15 ¿yr-olds Molly and Cassie are forced to operate the cafeteria. Poor characterization will initially discourage readers from continuing, but those who do will be rewarded by humorous antics and quirky personalities. Molly especially suffers from this, as readers are left wondering why her personality is so abrasive. The breezy style keeps the plot moving, and glosses over some of the unnecessary plot elements. The recipes are superfluous; no teen will be consulting this for a cookbook, but it is still a nice touch.

When a misaligned pairing on a homework assignment leads to an all-out free for all foodfight in the school cafeteria, blue-haired Molly and bubbly Cassie end up assigned to hot lunch duty -- hairnets and all. It doesn't take long before the simmering hostility between the two boils over. When the lunch lady quits, Cassie and Molly are suddenly in charge of the kitchen, condemned to hairnets and dishpan hands until they can get a better than 50% approval rating on their food from their schoolmates. A quick read with a fun twist. Bradley's 24 Girls in 7 Days was a kick, and if the plot here is a bit far-fetched, the delivery is as engaging as the premise.

It looked good in the bookstore at the time of my purchase. I only got in the middle of the 3rd chapter when I gave up and put the book away. It is so boring and dull and it is one of those books whose storyline/plot is pretty slow and very boring. The chapter names have all food titles and to me I just hate this book altogether. Maybe perhaps someday when I have enough patience and change of heart, I will try and pick it back up.
