Emma’s life is a mess. Her best friend isn’t talking to her, and the boy she’s known forever and dismissed has turned into a hottie. As if that weren’t 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 Dream—a 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 Emma’s big chance at taking control of her future. But it’s going to take a lot of faith in the human spirit—and a few donuts—to change her life.
Lara Zielin, the acclaimed author of The Implosion of Aggie Winchester and Donut Days, lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
-Zielin+s lighthearted yet substantive portrayals of Emma+s struggles with God, family, and friendship ring absolutely true.+ –Kirkus Reviews
