After a summer at Wilderness Camp, thirteenyear- old Katya decides that she absolutely cannot go back to school. At school she can''t eradicate invasive alien plants, go on foraged-food-finding missions, or just be herself. Her parents, despite being "school kind of people," are willing to give it a try, but Katya has to stick to their (just-like-school!) assignments. This isn''t what she had in mind. So with the help of a mysterious violin-playing boy, Milo, and new friend Francesca, Katya comes up with a plan to save her homeschooling experience. The three become the founding members of the Homeschool Liberation League--but will it be enough to convince Katya''s parents that her ideas about learning might be just right for her?
Forced to attend public school where she will be restricted from doing the cool things she does as a home-schooled student, Katya devises a plan with her violinist friend Milo and the creative-thinking Francesca to develop their own school program where her individuality and creativity can thrive unimpeded. 10,000 first printing.
