Key Features


It's 1969, and the Apollo 11 mission is getting ready to go to the moon. But for half-black, half-Japanese Mimi, moving to a predominantly white Vermont town is enough to make her feel alien. Suddenly, Mimi's appearance is all anyone notices. She struggles to fit in with her classmates, even as she fights for gender equality by entering science competitions and joining shop class instead of home ec. And even though teachers and neighbors balk at her mixed-race family and her refusal to conform, Mimi's dreams of becoming an astronaut never fade, no matter how many times she is told "No."

This historical middle grade novel is told in poems from Mimi's perspective over the course of one year in her new town, showing readers that positive change can start with just one person speaking up.


RL.7.5. Analyze how a drama’s or poem’s form or structure (e.g., soliloquy, sonnet) contributes to its meaning.
