An action-packed story with a cast of brilliant characters from the bestselling, award-winning Anna Fienberg.I think the best number in the whole universe is eight. My friend, Asim, likes numbers about as much as me, but he likes them all - odd or even. Esmarelda, though, who lives across the street, isn't so fond of numbers and she hates math. Singing's more her thing. She's really good, too - nearly as good as my mum. Mum's a professional singer, or was, until we had to move. The worst number in the universe, though, is seven. For a start, it's an odd number, and it's thin and sharp and mean-looking, like a medieval scythe. So when I saw 777 on that Mustang's license plate, I knew it was the start of something bad. And I was right.
