Zielin does a great job of highlighting different factors that made Emma's struggle so difficult: her parents' rules, her own aspirations and beliefs, what was happening to her friends, what was happening in church and what was not happening to her, to name most of them. The reality of Emma's situation hit a nerve with me and made the entire story very relatable. It reads quickly and touches the heart. Though Emma grows up in a minister's home, the story is so much more than that.

Emma, go get your sister out of Little Saints, he said. I didn’t want to walk through the church all by my lonesome after my mom had given such a controversial sermon. I didn’t want to walk through the church all by my lonesome after my mom had given such a controversial sermon p at the stage to see if my mom was still there, but she was gone. Probably she’d fled back to her office to pray. Dad- I started, but he cut me off. Listen to me. I’ll get your mom. You get your sister. We need to reconvene as a family as soon as possible. The dark look on his face told me this was a) serious and b) not a good time to argue.

I read a great YA book yesterday, Donut Days by Lara Zielin. It was one of those stories that I sat down to read, and didn't get up until it was finished. I love those sorts of books! I’m not usually one to jump on a book with a religious undertone, but there was something about this story that made me smile-so I decided to give it a read and I’m glad I did. I think the thing I liked the most was the voice. Readers and writers talk so much about voice, because it’s just that important. So many time I’ve read a book with a great plot that fell short because I didn’t think the voice was authentic enough, but not this book. The voice really stood out for me.

Donut Days - Lara Zielin. I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I might, reading about the donut camp set up before the opening of the Crispy Dream shop. bookczukGo to bookczuk's profile, opens in a new window. The drama between teenagers and between members of an Evangelical church was handled without demonizing one side or the other.
But this weekend Emma?s only focused on Crispy Dream, a hot new donut franchise opening in town, where Harley bikers and Frodo wannabes camp out waiting to be the first ones served. Writing the best feature story on the camp for the local paper might just win Emma a scholarship to attend a non- Christian college. But soon enough Emma finds the donut camp isn?t quite the perfect escape from all her troubles at Living Word Redeemer.
In a fresh, funny voice, newcomer Lara Zielin offers up a mesmerizing, fast-paced narrative full of wit and insight.
