She doesn't hold back from telling adults what she thinks. So why won't they tell her where she came from?
Celia Canterberry had no idea she was famous. Abandoned by her parents at birth and raised by her beloved Nan, the spirited seven-year-old much prefers the company of Huckleberry Finn, Victor Frankenstein, and Captain Ahab to the people of her snooty small town. But when she's babysat by her next-door neighbor, the precocious child is shocked to learn what her grandmother won't tell her: She's the subject of a satirical local comic strip.
Exploring a past at once foreign and familiar, the whip-smart little girl begins to realize why everyone treats her oddly. And as she seeks to understand her strange start in life, Celia's absentee parents return, planning to take her from the only family she's ever known.
Will this unruly youngster thwart the schemes of awful adults?
