“Everything in Ruby Pepperdine's life has been wrong since her beloved grandmother died. Even her two best friends aren't talking to her anymore. With the town gearing up for Bunning Day -- the annual celebration of the invention of the doughnut -- Ruby knows she has just one chance to make things right. But what if she makes the wrong wish? Ruby will win your heart as she navigates the rough waters of grief and friendship and growing up.”
— Sandy Scott, The Galaxy Bookshop, Hardwick, VT
