About the Book

After being raised by her grandparents for 12 years, everything changes for Missy Lou Button the day she turns thirteen. It is her first birthday without her beloved grandpa. Now, Missy Lou and her grandma Sweet Betty Sue struggle to live without him. But Missy Lou’s thirteenth year brings unexpected adventures with her best friend, C.E. Zog, who secretly wishes he was Superman. All Missy Lou wants to do is protect him from the bullies at school, read comics, fish at the creek, find out more about her mother, and try to forget that her father abandoned her when she was a little girl. While she struggles to come to terms with the information she finds out about her life, she saves a puppy from a storm, realizes what it truly means to be a hero, and finally understands that she will always have her grandpa in her heart.

About the Author

Sara, who may or may not be a witch, grew up on California’s Central Coast. She was raised on donuts and cookies provided by her Keele grandparents’ Tan Top Bakery. She wrote her first story at age six, titled “I Love My Family,” and she has been writing ever since. Growing up dyslexic (and her continued fun with it into adulthood), Sara always has and always will find comfort in words, imagination, and believing in the unbelievable. She currently lives in Millcreek, Utah, with her adorable family, who may or not be completely bonkers. She has four unreliable guard dogs, eight clocks that refuse to tell time, and four unremarkable typewriters. Buttery popcorn and cinnamon cake donuts are her favorite food. And she never, ever, never, ever, never leaves home without a stick of vanilla or cake batter lip balm in her pocket (her tastes are undeniably fantastic!). In her spare time, she loves to paint and roller-skate, but never at the same time—messes are dangerously unavoidable (she knows; she’s tried it!).
