Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus

Amazon.com Rating:

Aven Green loves to tell people that she lost her arms in an alligator wrestling match, or a wildfire in Tanzania, but the truth is she was born without them. And when her parents take a job running Stagecoach Pass, a rundown western theme park in Arizona, Aven moves with them across the country knowing that she'll have to answer the question over and over again.

Her new life takes an unexpected turn when she bonds with Connor, a classmate who also feels isolated because of his own disability, and they discover a room at Stagecoach Pass that holds bigger secrets than Aven ever could have imagined. It's hard to solve a mystery, help a friend, and face your worst fears. But Aven's about to discover she can do it all... even without arms.

Description

"Bowling, the author of three self-published YA novels, lets readers see Aven as a full, complex teenager — even while those around her have trouble doing so — and gives her a sharp sense of humor, including a penchant for inventing gruesome stories about how she lost her arms. Bowling’s novel demonstrates how negotiating others’ discomfort can be one of the most challenging aspects of having a physical difference and how friendship can mitigate that discomfort." — Publishers Weekly
