Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Lindsay Cooper is about to start middle school. In her free time, she works at her family's restaurant, The Park View, handing out the world's most delicious donuts at the Donut Dreams counter. Her grandmother started the counter as a way to send Lindsay's dad to college, and Lindsay wants to use her job the same way--to make her dream of going to school far away from her small town a reality. Home feels different ever since Lindsay's mom passed away two years ago. And not having her mom around to help her get through the start of middle school doesn't help her "first day of school" angst. But with her cousins Kelsey and Molly by her side, not to mention her BFF Casey, Lindsay soon discovers family and friends go a long way towards filling any hole in your heart. And life can still be as fun as a pink donut with rainbow sprinkles!"-- Provided by publisher.

    Two weeks before starting middle school, 12-year-old Lindsay reports for her first job, working at the donut counter in her grandparents' restaurant. Family plays a strong role in Lindsay's life. She and her younger brother have five cousins in the area, and since her mother's death two years ago, her grandparents have helped Dad keep everything running smoothly at home. Because she's grown up in a small, Midwestern town and knows every kid in her grade, middle school doesn't seem like a big step to Lindsay, but as the first day approaches, she's not so sure. She finds herself missing Mom more than ever, just when her relatives are rallying to support her. While the many characters, particularly family members (a list or chart would have been useful), can lead to some confusion, loyal readers will get to know them better as the Donut Dreams series progresses. Apparently, the first-person narrator will shift from book to book, as it has in Simon's 32-volume Cupcake Diaries series and newer Sprinkle Sundays series. A light, enjoyable family story. Grades 4-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

From cupcakes to ice cream and donuts! Having written over thirty books about middle school girls and cupcakes and ice cream, Coco Simon decided it was time for a change; so she&;s switched her focus to her third favorite sweet treat: donuts! When she&;s not daydreaming about yummy snacks, Coco edits children&;s books and has written close to one hundred books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes, ice cream cones, and donuts she&;s eaten. She is the author of the Cupcake Diaries, the Sprinkle Sundays, and the Donut Dreams series.
