Even read it in the car without stopping (reading, not the car)

Review by Bill

I could not put this book down. It took a little time to get me interested but by the time I got to the middle of it, I could not stop. I liked the competition that Tris faced and how he withstood pressure. I also went out to get dim sum after being inspired by Tris's family.

Very weird

Review by sarahf9056

This book was a weird book. I give it a 4 star because it was half about donuts and half about a completion called "Can you Cut It?”. If you have read Sydney A. Frankel’s Summer Mix up its worth it. These books have the same parts to it. Sydney wanted to go into a reading program and her friend Maggie went to a dance program. But Sydney told her mom that she went to the dance program, and so Sydney went out of her comfort-zone (but she was comfortable reading). In The Donut King, Tris went out of this comfort-zone too!
