EmmaÕs life is a mess. Her best friend isnÕt talking to her, and the boy sheÕs known forever and dismissed has turned into a hottie. As if that werenÕt enough, her preacher parents have decided not to pay for college unless Emma goes to a Christian school, something she will never do. Enter the Crispy DreamÑa new donut franchise where people camp out waiting to be the first ones served. The local paper is running a scholarship for the person who writes the best feature story about the donut camp. Joining the camp could be EmmaÕs big chance at taking control of her future. But itÕs going to take a lot of faith in the human spiritÑand a few donutsÑto change her life.
