Lia Abbie has the easy life—kicking it back with old school video games, hanging out with her best friend Barnabas, and alternating her living schedule between the apartments of her two dads and her mom.
Kiev Jimenez is a theater geek who loves him some Shakespeare and taking care of his pet armadillo. He has one set goal in life: obtaining the role of Horatio for the Hamlet school play.
When a showdown between Lia and Kiev lands them in the principal's office, they're forced into volunteer work at the cringe-worthy Piggy Palooza Festival, or risk being suspended. Lia and Kiev aren’t thrilled about the situation, especially when it interferes with Lia's relaxed life and Kiev's theater role. But by working together, they may find more than just bacon—possibly a little love in the air.
Bacon Pie by Candace Robinson & Gerardo Delgadillo
Never call Lia “Ophelia,”…never mind it is her name…just don’t do it because “accidents” can happen. One such accident put Lia and Kiev in the principal’s office, discovering their “penance” of the “accident” would be working as volunteers at the annual Piggy Palooza Festival. As crazy as it seems, that festival would be a life-changing experience for both Lia and Kiev, and in turn for some of their nearest and dearest friends.
Are you ready to relive the high school experience? Relax...not the nasty high drama, but the parts that were fun, funny and simply memorable, as enemies become friends and friends become more and all things piggy will bring laughter to your heart and heartburn to your stomach.
Simply delightful, fabulously sweet and the perfect slice of the best parts of youth, BACON PIE by Candace Robinson and Gerardo Delgadillo is like the sun shining through on a cloudy day, complete with the smiley face we all once drew!
Meet quirky friends, unique family units and of course, pigs….not to mention a little armadillo named Pepe. Fall in love with each and every character through their trials, their triumphs and their awakening to a special someone they never dreamed they could like. Different dreams, different lives all meld together to make up a fantastic read for all ages! But, be warned, not everything is better with bacon…
