Donuts and other proclamations of love / Jared Reck.

Reck, Jared, (author.).


While his friends prepare for college, Oscar decides his future is working with his grandfather on their food truck Hej Hej!, but when Oscar unexpectedly gets his first taste of adulthood he realizes his plans may be half-baked.
High school senior Oscar Olsson hates school, struggles to read, and wants nothing to do with college. He knows exactly what he wants: to run a food truck with Farfar, the Swedish grandfather who's raised him, selling rullekebab and munkar. On the other hand, Mary Louise "Lou" Messinger is driven: AP everything, valedictorian in her sights, and Ivy league college aspirations. When Lou hijacks Oscar's carefully crafted schedule of independent studies and blocks of time in the Culinary Lab, Oscar is roped into helping Lou complete her resume-building service project: reducing food waste in Central Adams High School. As festival season is about to begin, Oscar's future is anything but certain. -- adapted from jacket
