It’s what we do with life’s bummers, how we look at setbacks, what we make of the lemons that counts. And in this lighthearted, spirited book, Addie Johnson invites us to make a myriad of different things from those metaphorical lemons.

When you’re stuck in a difficult time you can change your outlook and your circumstances, you can stay healthy and surround yourself with love, you can seek out and find the hidden treasures all around you in everyday things, and, perhaps most important, you can figure out how to be grateful for anything and everything that comes your way. You never know, maybe all it will take is a little water, sugar, and ice before you’re feeling much better.

Addie Johnson grew up in San Francisco, went east to go to Vassar College, and never bothered to leave New York. She's an actor and helps run Rising Phoenix Rep, a small developmental theatre company. She’s also an editor and author of several books and lives in Brooklyn with her family.
