Awesome and Funny!!!

Review by Josh

I loved The Doughnut Fix because many kids can relate to it. Whether you've run a lemonade stand in the summer or you've even tried to run an entire business, like Tristan in this book, you'll enjoy this book a lot! I recommend this book to kids who have tried to run a business or something of the sort, if they like baking, or if they just LOVE DOUGHNUTS!!! (I mean, who doesn't?)

Great book. Has a good plot, relatable characters, and fun elements. If you like food or baking, this is a must. I VERY highly recommend.

I loved this story

Review by campgirlTLC

I think I could relate to the main character a lot. I always wonder if my parents will move us from our city to a suburb or rural area. I really liked the way the author fit all three kids's views of the move into the story. I also really liked the takes on friendships breaking, friendships staying and friendships growing. I can't wait to buy the next book in the series, The Doughnut King.

When I first got this book I didn’t think I would enjoy it. But when I started it with my mom my eyes grew wide and I knew I would love it! It’s a great book for 3rd and 4th graders and easy to read.

Right when New York is amazing...

Review by BusDriverBuggie5

12 year old Tristen, just moved from awesome, pretty, cool New York, to in the middle of nowhere, Petersville. Tristen couldn't be anymore furious! First of all, he starts by sleeping in the ATTIC with a SLEEPING BAG. Life in Petersville couldn't get more worse! But it all ends in Trist on a quest for the perfect recipe of chocolate cream doughnuts-and trying to open his own business. Maybe life in Petersville COULD end up getting better but it's all up to Trist. I recommend this book to all little chefs around the world-especially the ones who love chocolate cream doughnuts!
