Mia has a secret -- she sees colors associated with different letters, numbers, and sounds. When she was in third grade, she got made fun of for this, and now, in eighth grade, she is used to not talking about it. But her life is changing -- once she finds out there are other people like her, she has a hard time relating to her friends and family, and can't quite figure out her place in the world. Mia tries to find her way back to her self by reconnecting with the important things in her life, but you don't know how important some things are until you lose them.
