Tris Levin thought moving from New York City to middle-of-nowhere Petersville meant life would definitely get worse...only it actually got better. But just when things are looking up, Tris learns his doughnut business has a major supply issue, and so does Petersville itself. Folks keep moving away and if they can't get people to stay, Petersville may disappear.
Petersville needs to become a tourist destination, and his shop could be a big part of it…if Tris can keep up with demand. There's only one solution: the Belshaw Donut Robot. If Tris can win "Can You Cut It," the cutthroat competitive kids' cooking show, he can get the cash to buy the machine. But even with the whole town training and supporting him, Tris isn't sure he can live with what it takes to win.
