Addy has worn hearing aids for as long as she can remember. Her mother tells her this makes her special, but now that Addy's in grade six, she wants to be special for something she's done. When Addy joins the school running club to keep her best friend, Lucy company, she discovers she is a gifted runner. Lucy, isn't, which is problematic. Further troubles surface when Addy gets paired on a school project with Sierra, a smart, self-assured new classmate who wears a cochlear implant.
