- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 March #2
Ten-year-old Lemonade Witt makes more than one life-changing discovery after her single mother's death leaves her in the care of her estranged grandfather in Willow Creek, a town renowned as the "Bigfoot capital of the world." There she falls in with Tobin, a young neighbor who is even more emotionally needy than sheâhis father, a Vietnam vet with combat stress reaction, has gone missing. Tobin's obsessive focus on hunting for Bigfoot signsâhe shows touches of Asperger'sâprompts expeditions into the woods, and this and other incidents ultimately give Lem a handle for her grief and a chance to adjust. And, as it turns out, some of the woods' hidden residents are decidedly uncommon. Almost everyone in the cast suffers from some loss, and, to many readers, the protagonist's name, which refers to that famous adage, could be interpreted as a hint that she was unwanted (a notion that, unrealistically, never occurs to Lem herself), but Savage injects enough humor, mystery, and lively interaction among the characters to give this two-hanky debut a buoyant tone.
