Pie and Other Brilliant Ideas Book Blast & Amazon GC Giveaway #giveaway #amreading

A little something different today Abites. This is a children's book written by my friend, Karen Pokras Toz.

From the Award Winning Author of Millicent Marie is Not My Name

Ballet and baking pies – these are two of twelve year old Georgie Harris’ favorite things. When her parents decide to move closer to her grandmother’s nursing home, Georgie quickly learns the bad news: dance lessons are too expensive in this new town. 

Georgie spends most of her time baking pies to bring to her grandmother at the Willow Lakes Nursing Home. There she meets Eve, who inspires Georgie with stories of having danced with a world famous Russian ballerina many years ago.

As Georgie and Eve’s friendship evolves, their tales intertwine in this feel good story showing dreams really can come true.

I have read this story myself Abites, and here is what I think of it.

Pie is the adorable story of a girl who has to find new ways to get what she wants most - ballet lessons. It gives a great message about working for what you want, and the value of the elderly in our lives.

Perfect for tween girls. It's as sweet as pie and leaves you hungry for more.
