Join Bookworm alum Sarah Hopkins and bestselling children's author Melissa Savage in coversation to discuss Melissa's newest book, Nessie Quest!

Ada Ru finally thought her parents were going to agree to a Fitzhugh family vacation in Disney World the summer before sixth grade, until her father announces he's taking a teaching position in Scotland, and moving the family there for the entire summer. Ada Ru is anything but happy. She doesn't like their new home, she hates haggis, and she certainly doesn't like the idea that she will be away from her best friend all summer. To top it all off, there is said to be a monster in the lake near their house! That's when she meets Hamish Bean Timmy, Hammy Bean for short, captain of the Nessie Quest Monster Chaser boat tour. He knows everything there is to know about the fabled Loch Ness Monster and Scotland. But as the two unlikely friends embark on an epic adventure to spot the lake monster, they end up discovering more than they ever could have imagined.

Melissa Savage is the author of Lemons, The Truth About Martians, Nessie Quest, and the soon to be released Karma Moon—Ghost Hunter (January 2021).  Even though she’s never actually seen a Bigfoot, Martian, the Loch Ness Monster or ghost in person, Melissa loves to learn and write about cryptozoology and paranormal mysteries for children.
