Review My Forthcoming Book, Fig Newton Summer

My latest book is finished and awaiting publication, and I’d love to share it with readers who are willing to submit an early review.

In 12-year-old Lizzie’s world where boys, friends and all the drama of waiting to “bloom” are ever-present, she finds a distraction in the guise of an enormous fish; a Muskellunge called Goliath!  Set in the wilderness of northern Wisconsin, Lizzie finds a series of unfortunate events will unfold that threaten her vacation plans with her two closest summer friends.  Lizzie will need the help of an unlikely ally if she is to ever catch the fish of her dreams.
