The search for Bigfoot gets juicy in this funny and touching story that’s perfect for fans of Kate DiCamillo’s Flora & Ulysses and Katherine Applegate’s Crenshaw!

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.

"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

    I love reading but this site has made me like it even more. I help other kids read too. This book helped me see a way of making something good come out of something bad. I like how they call it lemonade.

          I read this book last summer and it was incredible. It was very funny and lighthearted, but these characters grew into heartwarming relationships with each other which made this book so awesome.

                  Lemonade Liberty Witt is 10 years old. Her mother died and she has to live with her grandfather Charlie, which is quiet and welcoming. Charlie encourages Lem to interact with the neighbors. She becomes friends with Tobin Sky, a Bigfoot investigator. Sometime later, Lem is Tobin's assistant, answering calls from neighbors who report Bigfoot sightings in their yards and farms. This book is really good and I recommend it to the Bigfoot lovers!
