Tris Levin is back and better than ever; at least, he’d better be better when his sister signs him up for a super competitive Kids Cooking Show. If he wins, he can buy the super (and super expensive) Donut Robot and solve all of his supply and demand problems. If he loses, he risks not just his own “Fill Your Own” future, but his whole shrinking town’s future as well. But as the competition heats up in questionable ways, Tris begins to wonder if winning at any cost is still winning. Janowitz dishes up the perfect blend of humor and heart, friends and family, falling down and getting back up for a deliciously satisfying read.— Laura
When Tris tries to save his doughnut business and town by competing on a cooking show, will he have what a takes, or 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.
