Pie and Other Brilliant Ideas Book Tour: Giveaway for an Audiobook and Charm Bracelet

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.

Instead, 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.
