Alice Mayfair, twelve-years-old, slips through the world unseen and unnoticed. Awkward, unkempt and ignored by her family, she is being shipped off to her eighth boarding school. The Experimental Center for Love and Learning is a super inclusive, off-beat school tucked away in a woodsy corner of upstate New York. It also just happens to be across the lake from a secluded clan of Bigfoots, or “Yare”. Within this clan is Millie Maximus, an unusually small Yare who feels just as lonely as Alice. One night Millie starts to drown in the lake and Alice comes to her rescue. The two become fast friends and Alice swears to protect Millie’s secret. But soon enough a league of Bigfoot hunters, led by another lonely misfit kid named Jeremy, is on their trail. This is a heartwarming and hilarious tale about friendship, furry creatures, and belonging that kids will be able to relate to on so many levels. (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award, 2018)
