The Benefits of Being an Octopus

Trapped under the realities of poverty, 12-year-old Zoey is used to being counted out. But when her family is threatened, she’s forced to find her voice, and she discovers that what others think has nothing to do with how strong you actually are.

The Benefits of Being an Octopus, pitched as Jason Reynolds’ Ghost from the perspective of a white girl living in a trailer park, comes out in September 2018 from Sky Pony Press.
