On the first day of sixth grade, Kyle Constantini lands in the principal's office after standing up against (that is, punching) Ino Nevarez, who was teasing a deaf girl at school. Her punishment? Join the NAVS program, which teaches constructive problem-solving (that is, <i>not</i> punching).<br /><br />Kyle loves NAVS, where her team competes in a challenge to navigate a maze. But her parents refuse to let her participate...so Kyle may just have to fudge the truth a bit to get around them. Then her best friend starts to crush on a cute new English boy, who seems to be interested in — Kyle? As the NAVS competition approaches, she has to trust her instincts, take some good advice, and figure out her way through the amazing maze of middle school.<br /><br />Rich characters, a big heart, and a witty, warm voice make <i>Kyle Finds Her Way</i> a debut worth discovering.
