THE DOUGHNUT FIX
Tristan isn’t Gifted or Talented like his sister Jeanine, and he’s always been okay
with that because he can make a perfect chocolate chip cookie and he lives in the
greatest city in the world. But his life takes a turn for the worse when his parents
decide to move to middle-of-nowhere Petersville--a town with one street and no
restaurants. It’s like suddenly they're supposed to be this other family, one that
can survive without bagels and movie theaters.
His suspicions about his new town are confirmed when he’s tricked into believing
the local general store has life-changing, chocolate cream doughnuts, when in fact
the owner hasn’t made them in years. And so begins the only thing that could
make life in Petersville worth living: getting the recipe, making the doughnuts,
and bringing them back to the town through his very own doughnut stand.
But Tristan will soon discover that when starting a business, it helps to be both
Gifted and Talented, and it's possible he's bitten off more than he can chew…
