My thoughts...Hmmm, let me start by saying I liked this book. That being said there are a few things that I don't usually discuss with people, those are religion and politics. You have your beliefs, I have mine. Donut Days takes place in a VERY religious community. There is quite a bit of preaching to the main character Emma about her actions in relation to the Bible. She seems to be constantly disappointing practically everyone because she doesn't walk the straight path everyone expects her to. There was almost too much preaching for me to enjoy the book. I was turned off at times and frustrated with the characters. There were several times I almost quit reading, but I continued, and I am glad I did.
While Donut Days, in my opinion has some flaws, it does have some strong qualities. There is a wonderful story here about friendship, self belief, and self discovery. I enjoyed Emma's voice, she felt very believable. Her character was very strong and determined and she was not afraid to stand up for herself. Donut Days also offers readers a bit of a mystery to solve. Lastly, the book made me think, question my beliefs a bit, and smile at the end.
Donut Days is recommended for young adults. It is a very clean read. Great for a day at the beach!
