Waiting On Wednesday (4)

Donut Days by Lara Zielin
Pub. Date: August 6, 2009
Publisher: Putnam

Emma has a lot going on. Her best friend’s not speaking to her, a boy she’s known all her life is suddenly 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.


A novel that takes place at and around a donut shop? Yes, please. I love donuts, particularly plain glazed ones from KrispyKremes. I would be craving sweets the entire time I read this one but at least I'd have a legitimate reason to go out and buy some. The plot sounds fun and just crazy enough to keep my attention. I'm so looking forward to this one!
