This is the winner of the 2017 Newberry Medal for Outstanding Contribution to Children's Literature. In one day, four lives unexpectedly weave together: Virgil Salinas, shy and kindhearted; Valencia Somerset, who is deaf, smart, brave, and loves nature; Kaori Tanaka. a self-proclaimed psychic; and Chet Bullen, who just wishes the weird kids would just act normal. They aren’t friends - at least not until Chet pulls a prank that traps Virgil and his pet guinea pig in a well. This disaster leads Kaori, Gen, and Valencia on an epic quest to find Virgil. With a little help from the universe, a rescue is performed, a bully is put in his place, and friendship blooms.
