"Subtle humor, a clever narrative style, and an endearing heroine." — School Library Journal

Tomboy Tugs Button was born to a luckless family. And when she looks at them, all she sees is her own reflection looking back, until she befriends popular Aggie Millhouse, wins a new camera in the Independence Day raffle, and stumbles into a mystery only she can solve. Suddenly this is a summer of change — and by its end, being a Button may just turn out to be what one clumsy, funny, spirited, and very observant young heroine decides to make of it.
