The Zing family lives in a world of misguided spell books, singular poetry, and state-of-the-art surveillance equipment. They use these things to protect the Zing Family Secret - one so huge, it draws the family to the garden shed for meetings every Friday night. Into their world comes Listen Taylor - a girl who is about to enter high school, and social isolation. Her dad's girlfriend is a Zing, and she seems nice enough, but Listen doesn't know what she is getting into. Enter Cath Murphy, a young teacher at the primary school that Cassie Zing attends, who is suffering from a broken heart. How will the two worlds of these two young women connect with the delightful madness that is the family Zing? Only the reader can know!
