Zoe mostly has it good. Her parents are nice, her brother isn‰Ûªt half bad, and her dog Ella is amazing. But Zoe thinks her life is boring ‰ÛÒ nothing ever changes. She‰Ûªs stuck in her wheelchair and her parents never let her do anything fun. And it really bugs her that some of the kids think she‰Ûªs not smart just because her body doesn‰Ûªt always do what she wants. Then in the midst of the holiday season, Zoe learns about the diverse cultures of her friends at school, and realizes she‰Ûªs not the only different one in class. While celebrating the traditions of Christmas, Hanukkanh, Kwanzaa, Divali and Eid, she realizes that excitement can arrive in weird and challenging ways. Will Zoe succeed when she needs to take charge for the first time? Or, is having adventures really not as great as she thought?
