Alice Mayfair, twelve years old, slips through the world unseen and unnoticed. Ignored by her family and shipped off to her eighth boarding school, Alice would like a friend. And when she rescues Millie Maximus from drowning in a lake one day, she finds one.
But Millie is a Bigfoot, part of a clan who dwells deep in the woods. Most Bigfoots believe that people -- NoFurs, as they call them -- are dangerous, yet Millie is fascinated with the No-Fur world. She is convinced that humans will appreciate all the things about her that her Bigfoot tribe does not: her fearless nature, her lovely singing voice, and her desire to be a star.
Alice swears to protect Millie's secret. But a league of Bigfoot hunters is on their trail, led by a lonely kid named Jeremy. And in order to survive, Alice and Millie have to put their trust in each other -- and have faith in themselves -- above all else.
Fans of this book will want to check out the sequel, Little Bigfoot, Big City.
"Bestselling adult author Weiner (In Her Shoes) makes a winning children’s book debut with this witty story of outcasts coming together...Weiner effectively raises the stakes as Jeremy and Jo escalate their investigations into Bigfoots and piece together clues to Millie’s true identity. Well-drawn characters, high comedy, and an open-ended finale will leave readers eager for the next installment." -- Publishers Weekly
