Undercover Chefs is a grand, feel-good story, one that would make a profound, fun and inspiring movie. I’m hoping for sequels to this story. Characters this good deserve continuing stories. Undercover Chefs is most highly recommended.

Fry’s purposive debut is reminiscent of Chris Crutcher’s works, but for a younger audience. An energizing and ultimately uplifting tale of the power to change.
—Kirkus August 2012
Fry has a great ear for middle school dialogue, and her light, humorous touch will ensure that readers keep turning the pages until the uplifting conclusion.

School Visit Reviews
"We were so fortunate to have Erin come and present to the students at Brightwood School. She was able to engage kids in all grade levels, who were absolutely captivated throughout her entire presentation. Students left excited about writing and wanting to capture ideas from their own life. She was also such a pleasure to work with! She was so easy going and willing to work with the contract requirements of our district. I wholeheartedly recommend her to present at your school. We can't wait to have her return!"
-Ms. Tee-Gaither, Principal, Brightwood Elementary School
"Erin Fry's visit to Bigelow Middle School was the highlight of our One School, One Book whole school celebration. Her presentation included personal touches and the right balance of talking and showing to fully engage our middle school students. She was responsive to our requests, willing to do three separate student presentations and a meeting with parents in the evening. From beginning to end, it was an absolute delight to work with Erin Fry and have her visit our school."
-Ms. Summa, Librarian, Bigelow Middle School
