Description


A colony of honeybees mistakes seventh-grader Zinnia's hair for a hive -- and that's the least of her problems. While Zinnia's classmates are celebrating the last day of seventh grade, she's in the vice principal's office, serving detention. Her offense? Harmlessly yarn-bombing a statue of the school mascot. When Zinnia rushes home to commiserate with her older brother and best friend, Adam, she's devastated to discover that he's gone -- with no explanation. Zinnia's day surely can't get any worse . . . until a colony of honeybees inhabits her hive-like hair Infused with magical realism, Danielle Davis delivers a quirky, heartfelt debut, exploring both the complex life of a young loner and a comical hive of honeybees. Together, these alternating and unexpected perspectives will touch anyone who has ever felt alone, betrayed, or misunderstood.

Very accessible biography for the slightly older student beyond the Who Was...? series. Loved the illustrations, the smart page design and the STEAM aspect of this readable series. - Reveiw by Maureen
