The audio edition of the bestselling middle grade novel about a spunky girl born without arms and a boy with Tourette syndrome navigating the challenges of middle school, disability, and friendship—all while solving a mystery in a western theme park.



Aven Green loves to tell people that she lost her arms in an alligator wrestling match, or a wildfire in Tanzania, but the truth is that she was born without them. And when her parents take a job running Stagecoach Pass, a rundown western theme park in Arizona, Aven moves with them across the country knowing that she'll have to answer the question over and over again.



Her new life takes an unexpected turn when she bonds with Connor, a classmate who also feels isolated because of his own disability, and they discover a room at Stagecoach Pass that holds bigger secrets than Aven ever could have imagined. It's hard to solve a mystery, help a friend, and face your worst fears. But Aven's about to discover she can do it all . . . even without arms.

Dusti Bowling holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and a Master of Education, but her true passion is writing. She is the author of Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus, Momentous Events in the Life of a Cactus, and 24 Hours in Nowhere. She currently lives in Carefree, Arizona, with her husband and three daughters.

Karissa Vacker is a multiple AudioFile Earphones Award-winning audiobook narrator and actress. After graduating with a BFA in acting from Southern Methodist University in her hometown of Dallas, Texas, she performed in regional theaters across the country before coming to Los Angeles. She has guest starred in network television shows and films and continues to work on screen and stage. Her audiobook credits include romance, young adult fiction, and mystery thrillers.
