Her older brother (aka best friend and yarn bombing accomplice) leaves without a word.
And then the worst ever of worst evers: BEES. IN. HER. HAIR.
Between a failed yarn bomb, a missing brother, a mother who doesn’t get her, and a nosy new neighbor who seems to notice way too much—especially when it comes to her buzzzzzy new friends—Zinnia’s last day of seventh grade is challenging, to say the least. But learning to trust herself might just be the toughest challenge of all, as Zinnia discovers in this irresistible story about discovering the true meaning of home.
