Recipe for love: Take the steaming heap of Lou’s life. Add a tasty EMT explorer who makes Lou’s heart melt like dark chocolate. Throw in the chance to win a national cooking contest. Kiss until perfectly done.
Sugar High is a completed 50,000 word manuscript target for the YA market. In this first person narrative intended for readers ages 12 and up, Lou recounts her junior year of high school. She shares her snarky opinion on everything from diabetes and doctors to boys and her wacky family.
