The Zing family lives in a world of misguided spell books, singular poetry, and state-of-the-art surveillance equipment. They use these things to protect the Zing Family Secret — one so huge it draws the family to the garden shed for meetings every Friday night.
Into their world comes socially isolated middle grader Listen Taylor, whose father is dating a Zing. Enter Cath Murphy, a young teacher at the elementary school that Cassie Zing attends, suffering from a broken heart. How will the worlds of these two young woman connect? Only the reader can know!
I excitedly suggest this book. I found it by complete accident, was in the library, the cover caught my eye and I figured I would give it a try. I got through the first 50 pages before I got out of the library. So funny, heartrenching. Loved it.
