8 Notes to a Nobody
Cynthia T Toney
BIRD FACE SERIES
"Funny how you can live your days as a clueless little kid, believing you look just fine ... until someone knocks you in the heart with it."
Wendy Robichaud doesn't care one bit about being popular like good-looking classmates Tookie and the Sticks--until Brainiac bully John-Monster schemes against her, and someone leaves anonymous sticky-note messages all over school. Even the best friend she always counted on, Jennifer, is hiding something and pulling away. But the spring program, abandoned puppies, and high school track team tryouts don't leave much time to play detective. And the more Wendy discovers about the people around her, the more there is to learn.When secrets and failed dreams kick off the summer after eighth grade, who will be around to support her as high school starts in the fall?
“... shows that there is usually more to a person's behaviour than initially meets the eye. Why is a bully a bully? And why do some people need to be as perfect as possible?”

Like Wendy's mom in the story, the author has always been a salvager. She's salvaged discarded materials from roadsides and manufacturers' waste for use in creating countertops, furniture, and home decor.
