Josie Taylor was born on Leap Day, February 29, and today she gets to celebrate her fourth real birthday, full of birthday surprises, a school play audition, her driver’s test, a scavenger hunt, and the secret sweet-sixteen party at the lake. Like any teenager, sometimes she wonders what other people are thinking. Josie get to experience that by “leaping” into the minds and viewpoints of Josie and everyone around her, changing your assumptions of people forever.


Mia Winchell, a thirteen-year-old girl living with synesthesia, problems with her senses. Words and sound have color for her. Her synesthesia causes her problems in school, with friends, the understanding of her parents and peers.
