“I love books about feisty girls and nerdy boys. Melissa Savage’s astoundingly good debut novel is packed with humor, mystery, friendship, family secrets, and even Bigfoot! I think you’ll love it, too.”
Karen Cushman, Newbery Medalist for The Midwife’s Apprentice

“An enjoyable and welcome exploration of sorrow, healing, and friendship.” —School Library Journal
