Melissa Savage released her newest book, Lemons, on May 2, 2017. This novel introduces Lemonade “Lem” Liberty Witt, a nine-year-old who is forced to move to a small town in California that is known for one thing: Bigfoot sightings. Join Lem in this middle-grade read as she takes on many new experiences and ultimately tries to make lemonade out of the rotten lemons life has handed her.

“Lemonade Liberty Witt’s mama always told her: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. But Lem can’t possibly make lemonade out of her new life in Willow Creek, California—the Bigfoot Capital of the World—where she’s forced to live with a grandfather she’s never met after her mother passes away.

Then she meets eleven-year-old Tobin Sky, the CEO of Bigfoot Detectives Inc., who is the sole Bigfoot investigator for their small town. After he invites Lem to be his assistant for the summer, they set out on an epic adventure to capture a shot of the elusive beast on film. But along the way, Lem and Tobin end up discovering more than they ever could have imagined. And Lem realizes that maybe she can make lemonade out of her new life after all.” –

Join Lemonade on a heart-warming journey as she manages the grief of a major loss, the joy of discovery, and the adventures that fall in between!

“I love books about feisty girls and nerdy boys. Melissa Savage’s astoundingly good debut novel is packed with humor, mystery, friendship, family secrets, and even Bigfoot! I think you’ll love it, too.” —Karen Cushman, Newbery Medalist for The Midwife’s Apprentice
