Book Description: Novalee is a 9-year-old girl who has “a secret that sits at the back of her tongue like a balled-up spider.” Just when Nova figures out a way to transform herself from boring Nova into super Nova, her violin teacher does something that threatens her universe: he kisses her. Her world tumbles out of control, but an unlikely friendship with a fellow outcast, Toby, helps her find the courage, voice, and persistence to save her life.
