Baking for Dave: She Crosses the Country to Enter a Baking Contest, But Ends Up Winning a Bigger Prize

Iris Heller, a teenager with Sensory Processing Disorder, runs away to compete in a national bake-off contest.In order to get there, she steals her mom's car, travels along the East Coast, and does the most terrifying thingof all - interacts with actual people! Iris has never been like other girls, but she's not about to start letting thatget in the way.Iris has this profound fascination for the musican Dave Matthews, and she feels a compelling need to competein the bake-off for Dave. To compensate for nervousness, she has the habit of humming, beatboxing, andmaking musical contraptions out of items around her. It is this talent that gets noticed at several road stopsalong the way, which leads to her inevitable ''gone viral'' glory. At a donut shop, Iris sings like an angel. At acoffee shop, she plays a symphony using cups and the soda fountain. At a restaurant, she builds a gloriousmusical fountain out of dishes and pans. Iris is the kind of pure spirit who brings the best out of the worldaround her without knowing it.Iris' mom (Maisy) and her best friend Eric set out to find Iris. All lives converge at Happy World, the Disneyesqueparadise, where the bake-off takes place. Iris, whose life has been one of isolation andmisunderstanding, finds out just how much she is loved. It doesn't matter whether she wins the bake-off, she'salready won the biggest contest of all, triumphing in life.
