Mysti Murphy is starting seventh grade and so far nothing is turning out as expected. Her best friend Anibal Gomez has blown her off to become a “hipster” and gain the attention of a pretty girl at school. Meanwhile, Mysti has plenty of problems at home. Her family has a secret; her mother is agoraphobic which means she never leaves the house. Mysti and her sister keep this secret and their father takes care of everything that needs to be done outside of the house. Things take a bad turn when her father falls and suffers an injury that lands him in the hospital for a long stay. Now it is up to Mysti to move beyond her mother's projected fears and find the courage to help herself and her family. With the loss of her best friend Mysti ends up at the “loser island” lunch table and eventually befriends a strong and sassy Rama Khan who helps her find that courage. Mysti is a character that you'll be rooting for from beginning to end! (Grades 5-8 School Library Journal)
