"Kristi Wientge deftly captures the turmoil of adolescence." --Us Weekly Debut author Kristi Wientge tackles the uncomfortable--but all too relatable--subject of female body hair and self-esteem with this sweet and charming novel in the tradition of Judy Blume. Karma Khullar is about to start middle school, and she is super nervous. Not just because it seems like her best friend has found a newer, blonder best friend. Or the fact that her home life is shaken up by the death of her dadima. Or even that her dad is the new stay-at-home parent, leading her mother to spend most of her time at work. But because she's realized that she has seventeen hairs that have formed a mustache on her upper lip. With everyone around her focused on other things, Karma is left to figure out what to make of her terrifyingly hairy surprise all on her own.
