Saige Turns a Page

Saige’s life is full of contrasts. At school, she’s acing science but failing history. At home, she’s loaded up with responsibilities when she’d rather hang out with her friends. And her parents? She has an easy-going relationship with her dad but a difficult one with her mom. On top of it all, she’s struggling to understand her parents’ divorce. Her safe space is the kitchen and her companions are her cookbooks.

Will Saige’s love of cooking help her turn the page to a happy ending?

Available now on Amazon in both paperback and eBook formats.
