You will love this debut middle-grade novel with diverse characters, light humor, and a homeschooled, strong female protagonist.
Aucuria “Curi” Andrews, the main character, is a quiet and overly polite but opinionated young teen, growing up in an African-American home. She’s trying to learn to speak her mind more instead of shrinking back in uncomfortable situations. She also has to learn the hard way about idolizing people.
Cornelius “Cooleo” NoLastName is a laid-back yet snarky boy who tries to appear much cooler than he is to his own dismay. He has a quick temper that flares when he easily becomes embarrassed.
Toki Kisaragi, an Asian-American teen, is a super jolly and fun-loving dude with no filter. Curi thinks she has him figured out, but he keeps surprising her.
Wolfeman is a cocky, pompous young man with an unusually flowery way of speech. He’s a free-spirit that loves traveling the world, but recently due to a series of events he has been forced to pick-up a desk-job.
Victorine-Ophelia “Ophelia” is a young woman who is everything Curi aspires to be. She is confident, intelligent, and beautiful. Ophelia isn’t afraid to do whatever she needs to succeed or be happy.
