From the New York Times bestselling author of Hungry Heart Jennifer Weiner comes a laugh-out-loud funny and painstakingly real tale of friendship, furry creatures, and finding the place where you belong.

Alice Mayfair, twelve years old, slips through the world unseen and unnoticed. Ignored by her family and shipped off to her eighth boarding school, Alice would like a friend. And when she rescues Millie Maximus from drowning in a lake one day, she finds one.

But Millie is a Bigfoot, part of a clan who dwells deep in the woods. Most Bigfoots believe that people—NoFurs, as they call them—are dangerous, yet Millie is fascinated with the No-Fur world. She is convinced that humans will appreciate all the things about her that her Bigfoot tribe does not: her fearless nature, her lovely singing voice, and her desire to be a star.

Alice swears to protect Millie’s secret. But a league of Bigfoot hunters is on their trail, led by a lonely kid named Jeremy. And in order to survive, Alice and Millie have to put their trust in each other—and have faith in themselves—above all else.

      I like this book. It was interesting to learn about how the bigfoots live so close to the people. I liked Alice, too. She is a nice girl who just doesn't fit in. This was a sweet book and I always wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next. I recommend this book.

        I felt so bad for Alice. Her family doesn't want her around, and they send her off. I'm so glad she finds a friend, though. I just really wish her family hadn't been so mean.

          I really like this book. It is about a girl named Alice who has something special about her but no one can find it. I think this book was written very well and I recommend it.

            This book is really sad because the main character, Alice, is a poor little rich girl and she's been neglected by her parents. Alice has moved to a ton of schools, so it hasn't really worked out for her. She meets Millie, which she becomes best friends with. I didn't really enjoy this book that much, I thought that plot wasn't very good.

              I think this book is very sweet. My favorite character was Millie. She was a very adventurous little bigfoot, or Yare.

                    Alice has always felt like she hasn`t fit in. Her parents are not like Alice at all and Alice has always imagined different parents running up to her crying. She has been through 7 different schools, none of them being a good fit for her. But one school changes everything...
