How would your friends react if you started wearing cat ears every day?

Bridge, Tab and Em have been friends for years. Now it's 7th grade- Bridge wears cat ears everywhere, Tab is passionate about feminism and social justice, and Em seems to develop curves overnight. Can they stay friends even when they sometimes seem like strangers even to themselves?
The narrative of the girls' friendship is intertwined with fellow 7th-grader Sherm's letters to his absent grandfather and a second-person story of an unnamed high school girl.
Stead handles serious issues like sexting, slut shaming and bullying realistically and age appropriately without coming across preachy or heavy handed. For fans of Judy Blume, Jerry Spinelli, and Hilary McKay.
