Publisher Summary

Selected for the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master ListA Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year A determined 12-year-old girl bikes across the country to meet her idol. She’s ready for an adventure– but she can’t imagine all the surprises in store. Introverted Bicycle has lived most of her life at the Mostly Silent Monastery in Washington, D.C.– and she likes it that way. But when her guardian, Sister Wanda, announces that Bicycle is going to attend a camp where she will learn to make friends, Bicycle says no way. Determined to prove she can make friends on her own, she sets off on her bike for San Francisco to meet her idol, a famous cyclist, certain he will be her first true friend. Who knew that a ghost would haunt her handlebars and that she would have to contend with bike-hating dogs, a bike-loving horse, bike-crushing pigs, and a mysterious lady dressed in black. Over the uphills and downhills of her journey, Bicycle discovers that friends are not such a bad thing to have after all, and that a dozen cookies really can solve most problems. For more quirky middle-grade fun, don’t miss Colossus of Roads, also by Christina Uss! A Junior Library Guild Selection!
