Diary of a Baker’s Son

Cherry danishes and something about a boy

by Daniel Elijah Sanderfer

What happens when the delightfully clumsy son of a baker meets an emo wallflower?

Jeffrey Towler is clumsy, so clumsy and awkward. But when a cute emo boy moves into the house across from his mom's bakery, an awkward crush quickly turns into a budding first love.

J.P. doesn't socialize much; he hasn't since his mom died a couple of years ago. At sixteen, he's just learning how to maneuver this thing called life. Factor in a strained relationship with his dad who is having his own crisis and you have all the ingredients to create something beautiful or something disastrous.

Join Daniel Elijah Sanderfer for this coming of age romance about two completely opposite boys who find the recipe for something unexpectedly sweet.
