Hello, Universe (paperback)
In one day, four lives weave together in unexpected ways. Virgil Salinas is shy and kindhearted, and feels out of place in his loud and boisterous family. Valencia Somerset, is deaf, is smart, brave, and secretly lonely, and loves everything about nature. Kaori Tanaka is a self-proclaimed psychic, whose little sister Gen is always following her around. And Chet Bullens wishes the weird kids would just act normal so that he can concentrate on basketball. They aren’t friends, but through luck, smarts, bravery, and a little help from the universe, a rescue is performed, a bully is put in his place, and friendship blooms.
