"Mom’s love for Heidi has instilled feelings of inadequacy in Aurora, who believes her mother wishes she were more like Heidi. Aurora has always been different. She speaks a made-up language called Beepish, prefers the company of adults to that of children, and wears her T-shirts inside out because of the bothersome tags.... A now-grown and pregnant Heidi’s impending visit triggers tension between Aurora and her mother, and Aurora is determined not to be nice to Heidi. Will she learn there’s 'soof' enough for them both?" — Kirkus Reviews
