Key Features


Ten-year-old Marvel Harlow is afraid of absolutely everything — amusement park rides (even the kiddie ones), bugs (earwigs, centipedes, beetles), suspicious food (slightly brown guacamole, kids (her own age, younger AND older), summer camp, school, and most of all, walking home alone (which she has to do twice a week when her mom and dad are working).

When on one of Marvel’s miserable walks home from school, she sees a group of kids teasing a goat that has mysteriously shown up on the soccer field, she momentarily forgets to be afraid and rescues the goat.

Only Butter isn’t any old goat. She’s a fainting goat. When Butter feels panic, she freezes up and falls over. Marvel knows exactly how Butter feels and exactly what Butter needs — her.

Soon, Butter and Marvel are going everywhere together, and Butter thrives under Marvel’s support. And Marvel doesn’t just help Butter. Butter helps her. Everything is easier for Marvel with Butter by her side. But just when Marvel starts to imagine a life in which she can manage her anxiety, instead of letting it control her, Butter’s owner shows up to claim her. Will Marvel find a way to keep her friend? Or will she revert back to the anxious, lonely person she used to be?
