Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Mysti Murphy wishes she were a character in a book. If her life were fictional, she'd magically know how to deal with the fact that her best friend, Anibal Gomez, has abandoned her in favor of being a "hipster". She'd be able to take care of everyone when her dad has to spend time in the hospital. And she'd certainly be able to change her family's secret.

Seventh grade is not turning out the way Mysti had planned. With the help of a hot-air balloon, her new friend Rama Khan, and a bright orange coat, can she find the courage to change?

Refreshingly different!

This is not a typical story line and the ending isn't predictable. Good job being so original and creative!

Reading needed improvement

The story had a lot going for it which I didn't realize until much later due to the reading of the story This is one book I should have read as the reading made the content of the story a bit less enjoyable.
