Meet the Authors
Seventh-grader Zoey often wonders how much easier everything would be if she were an octopus: eight arms to do eight things at once. Incredible camouflage ability and steady, unblinking vision. Powerful protective defense. But she’s just a girl, caring for her younger siblings in a small trailer while Mom works. She usually embraces being practically invisible, but after joining the debate team at school, she wonders if she’s been right to be quiet about conditions at home. This is a “heartbreaking, beautifully written book about finding one’s voice” (School Library Journal, Starred Review).
