Mia and her parents are moving back to Vermont to help her grandmother, a former entomologist, sell her cricket farm. Mia's happy to leave the bustle of Boston, but she's less enthused about having to attend two summer camps instead of vegging out in front of the TV, her favorite pastime since her gymnastics injury last year. Despite her reluctance, the Launch (entrepreneurial) and Ninja Warrior camps help her in ways she never expected. Meanwhile, someone is out to sabotage Gram's business after she decides to expand rather than sell, inspiring Mia's Launch project and adding a fun, mystery element to the story. Amid common themes of friendship and overcoming fears, Messner (Breakout, 2018) folds in strong messaging about sexual harassment, most poignantly in Mia's experience with a former gymnastics coach. As Mia's trauma is slowly revealed, Messner incorporates others' #MeToo experiences, providing her with a strong support system of women. This book directly addresses a relevant topic rarely discussed with middle-schoolersâand it's not the lively debate over whether people should eat crickets. Grades 5-8.
