Eleven-year-old Maya Papayaas ex-circus parents not only left her with a name like a deranged fruit salad, but her very own tail...a four-foot, furry tail with a mind of its own. Mr. Norbert says Maya must keep the tail a super-big secret, and wear the itchy, tail-hiding pants whenever she leaves the house. That means Maya canat have sleepovers or go swimming with the other kids, either, even thought EVERY OTHER eleven-year-old girl at her school gets to have sleepovers and go swimming. Still, Maya lives a very happy life with Mr. Norbert and their many pets...until one day, Mr. Norbertas computer tells Maya that sheas not really a little girl at all. Before Maya can figure out what THAT means, a knock on the door spins events in motion that send Maya all the way across the world...all the way to India, and into an adventure about the truth of her temperamental tail.
