Description-

  • 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!

About the Author-

  • Jessie Janowitz grew up in New York City and is still living there with her husband and three children, all of whom love doughnuts as much as she does. She is the author of The Doughnut Fix and The Doughnut King. Visit jessiejanowitz.com.

    March 1, 2019
    Twelve-year old Tris Levin has come to love the tiny upstate New York town of Petersville, where his family relocated from New York City in The Doughnut Fix (2018).He cannot keep up with the demand of his booming doughnut business. He and his partner, Josh, decide the solution is to acquire an extremely costly robotic doughnut-making machine, but how to make it happen? Petersville's shrinking population is causing it to lose the post office, and the library and school are at risk as well. An effort to make the town a foodie destination with Mom's Station House restaurant and Tris' Doughnut Stop as mainstays is just the beginning of a renewal plan. Tris reluctantly enters a televised kids' cooking contest to try to win the big prize while advertising his town. Readers view the events and characters entirely through Tris' thoughts as he narrates his own tale earnestly and honestly, learning much about himself. He makes and loses a friend, fellow contestant Keya, an Indian girl with whom he has lovely discussions of the Yiddish language and his family's few Jewish traditions. (The book adheres to a white default.) His takes on the highs, lows, and draconian demands of the contest, hosted by the evil Chef JJ, are both hilarious and a spot-on spoof of reality shows. There are some surprise twists and a satisfying outcome.Tris is a charmer, and readers will root for him all the way. (recipes, acknowledgements) (Fiction. 8-12)
