Melissa Savage

Melissa Savage is a writer and a child and family therapist. Her desire to write purposeful, issue-driven books for young people, coupled with her interest in cryptozoology and the mystery of Bigfoot inspired her to write Bigfoot, Tobin & Me. Melissa lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with her family.

Bigfoot, Tobin & Me

Lemonade’s mother named her for her favourite saying: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. But now her mum’s dead. After relocating to her grandpa’s place in Bigfoot-obsessed Willow Creek, Lem meets Tobin. Quirky and determined, he’s the CEO of Bigfoot Detectives, Inc. and sole investigator for the town. Lem is reluctantly enlisted as his assistant. Together, they try to capture a shot of the elusive beast on film, but what they find is even more amazing.

A heart-warming adventure about friendship and overcoming grief by a stunning new voice in middle-grade fiction.
