Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lionel and Anisa are the best of friends and have seen each other through some pretty tough times--Anisa's dad died and Lionel's dad  left, which is like a death for Lionel. They stick together no matter what. So when Lionel suggests a detour through a local construction site on their way home, Anisa doesn't say no. 

And that's where Lionel and Anisa make a startling discovery--a baby abandoned in a port-o-potty. Anisa and Lionel spring into action. And in saving Baby Doe, they end up saving so much more.

Danette Vigilante crafts an accessible, heartfelt and much needed story for the middle grade market featuring Latino characters.

The prose of Make Lemonade swirls around and back-eddies on itself, creating a rich and powerful novel full of hope and friendship, with undercurrent questions of what it is that makes our lives worthwhile. Highly recommended.
