Start with one quiet, perfect life.

Add: Mum’s new boyfriend, his two kids, one best friend (with a big crush), one sworn enemy, and a long-lost grandmother.

Flavor with a dash of laughter, a pinch of jealousy, and plenty of secrets.
Cook on high all summer long. . . .

Eleven-year-old Sunny (short for Sunday) is an only child, an introvert, a dog lover, and part owner of Pizza-a-Go-Girl. She and her mum live near the beach in Australia. Good thing, because this summer is one long heat wave. But the temperature isn’t the only thing that’s making Sunny hot: her perfect life is about to change in a million ways!

Marion Roberts has worked as a chef and taught people how to cook, but started writing because she wanted a job she could do in her pajamas. Sunny Side Up is her first novel. She lives in Melbourne, Australia.
