Doesn't everyone love a good baking competition? If you or the kids in your life are into the hit show Nailed It and if those kids have the entrepreneurial spirit, then this book is for you When Tris tries to save his doughnut business and town by competing on a cooking show, will he have what a takes to win, or will he lose it all?
Tris Levin thought moving from New York City to middle-of-nowhere Petersville meant life would definitely get worse...only it actually got better. But just when things are looking up, problems start rolling in.
His doughnut business has a major supply issue. And that's not the worst part, Petersville has its own supply problem--it doesn't have enough people. Folks keep moving away and if they can't get people to stay, Petersville may disappear.
Petersville needs to become a tourist destination, and his shop could be a big part of it, if Tris can keep up with demand. There's only one solution: The Belshaw Donut Robot. If Tris can win "Can You Cut It," the cutthroat competitive kids' cooking show, he can get the cash to buy the machine. But even with the whole town training and supporting him, Tris isn't sure he can live with what it takes to takes to win.
This sequel to The Doughnut Fix is about growing up, family, change, and as always, doughnuts. Kids with the spirit of an entrepreneur will relate to the ups and downs Tris experiences in this book. Parents and teachers, your middle school kids will love this story
A gorgeous high-seas, queer, fantasy for teens! Florian, born Flora, is a young pirate trying to make enough money to escape to a safe place with her brother. Lady Evelyn Hasegawa is a high-born imperial shipped off to be a soldier's bride. Author, Maggie Tokuda-Hall is able to weave together stories of love, adventure, family, identity, and magic in a world overshadowed by a seemingly mighty colonial power. A tale worthy of the sea, her mermaids, and the witches, pirates, and soldiers who hunt the two lovers. - review by Jessica
