What it's about: With middle school on the horizon, Bug's best friend, Moira, is determined to get them ready. But Bug's focus isn't on crushes and it certainly isn't on dresses. With a beloved uncle having passed, joining the ghosts that have already haunted Bug's house for so long, there's a lot weighing heavy on Bug's heart. Just who are the ghosts that never seem to leave? And how does a person move on having lost someone they love? And what would happen if Bug stopped trying to understand how to be a girl and got to just be?
