Summary
How does this piano-loving featherweight of a girl respond when her brothers keep on making her do their chores? She takes up boxing, of course! Maybe if she gets good enough, they'll even stop calling her Feather. French illustrator Rémi Courgeon has created a beautiful book about a tenacious girl in an all-male household. Gorgeous illustrations frame one family's story of differences, acceptance, and love. Readers will see Feather's determination and sense of justice as positive, transformative traits that help us on the road to becoming who we really are. And they will root for her as she learns to stand up to her brothers and proves that sometimes the best way to go after what you want is to leap into something new! -- from dust jacket
