Lara Zielin's Donut Days

 

continued

Will she escape her narrow surroundings? Discover what is really going on behind closed doors at the church? Reunite with her best friend? And will Jake, the boy who has become "smokin' hot," still love her?

In the end, a mystery is solved, relationships resolved. And this book from the editor of the U-M LSAmagazine proves to be less about religion than about intellectual honesty and diversity. "I think I'd have precious few friends if I only befriended people who thought the same way I did about everything," Emma's father tells her.

While Emma searches the donut camp for a story "with characters and obstacles," readers will find one in Zielin's compelling narrative.

Zielin celebrates the August 6 book release with a reading and writing workshop for teens at the AADL Mallets Creek Branch followed by a reading and signing at Nicola's Books.    (end of article)
