A determined 12-year-old girl bikes across the country in this quirky and charming debut middle-grade novel.
Introverted Bicycle has lived most of her life at the Mostly Silent Monastery in Washington, D.C. When her guardian, Sister Wanda, announces that Bicycle is going to attend a camp where she will learn to make friends, Bicycle says no way and sets off on her bike for San Francisco to meet her idol, a famous cyclist, certain he will be her first true friend. Who knew that a ghost would haunt her handlebars and that she would have to contend with bike-hating dogs, a bike-loving horse, bike-crushing pigs, and a mysterious lady dressed in black.
Over the uphills and downhills of her journey, Bicycle discovers that friends are not such a bad thing to have after all, and that a dozen cookies really can solve most problems.

Brings out sense of adventure
This story has adventure, kindness, humor, friendship. My 10 yr old keeps listening to it over any other book. I think it gives her the courage to experience her own adventures

Amazing narrator makes the story even better!
I listen to my audio books, both through audible and the public library, but this narrator's performance was one of the best I've ever heard! I admit I wasn't that interested in the book when reading the synopsis, but read it for school (I'm a teacher). I ended up loving the book and all of Bicycle's adventures, and I think part of it was the great job that narrator did! She had great inflection and created such funny voices for every new character. Every one of my students who I let listen to it as well also loved it!

FANTASTIC adventure story about friendship and life
My eight-year-old daughter and I found this story to be absolutely awesome. We listen to chapter after chapter of it over a five day canoe trip that we have just been on together. The characters are really cool and the story is both realistic and fantastic and constantly engaging our attention.
There are also funny parts and we found so many unlikely coincidences between this story and certain parts of our own lives.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
