Publisher's Summary

The sequel to the critically acclaimed Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus follows Aven Green as she confronts yet another challenge: high school.    

"High School. Two words that struck fear into the heart of every armless middle schooler I knew. Which was me. And like two people online."    

Just as Aven starts to feel comfortable in Stagecoach Pass, with her friends and schoolmates accustomed to her lack of "armage", everything changes once again. She's about to begin high school...with 2,300 new kids to stare at her. And no matter how much Aven tries to play it cool, nothing prepares her for the reality. In a year filled with confusion, humiliation, fears, loss, and just maybe love, can Aven manage to stay true to herself?

I loved this!

This was a great book! I loved the plot+overall story! The only thing I didn’t love was there was not a problem or much action like the first one. I’m only 11 so i don’t know if this counts. But still READ THIS BOOK!!!

Absolutely love this audiobook!

First listened to Insignificant Events before this one. My 7yo daughter, my mom and I all have listened to both these many times. We LOVE the characters, the story, the narrator. Thank you for this story!

Loved it! My 11 yo and 13 yo we're begging to listen to this book. They fell in love with Aven and her wittiness.

aven goes to high school

is a nice progression on from the first book, aven struggles to fit in and takes a big knock to her confidence. goes through some typical high school drama... but comes out at the end having learnt a few life lessons.
