Donut Days by Lara Zielin

Front Cover: Emma has a lot going on. Her best friend's not speaking to her, a boy she's known all her life is suddenl smokin' hot and in love with her, and oh yes, her evangelical minister parents may lose their church, especially if her mother keeps giving sermons saying Adam was a hermaphrodite. But this weekend, Emma's only focused on Crispy Dream, a hot new donut franchise opening in town, where Harley bikers and Frodo wannabes camp out waiting to be the first ones served. Writing the best feature story on the camp for the local paper might just win Emma a scholarship to attend a non-Christian college. But soon enough Emma finds the donut camp isn't quite the perfect escape from all her troubles at Living Word Redeemer. In a fresh, funny voice, newcomer Lara Zielin offers up a mesmerixing, fastpaced narrative full of wit and insight. This was a really good first book! It was really interesting, I mean who would expect to read about pastors and donuts and bikers all together? Ya know? And it def kept me interested the whole way through wanting to know what was going on with her parents and Mr. O'Connor. And of course they end the book where they don't say if she made it or not! Into that college, but I guess it was good she discovered things about herself and her parents. I also love the cover, it's silly. And those donuts sounded amazing. Man, there's a donut place near my house called Pao's donuts that are fresh and deeelicious. 2 more books everyone!!
