Zero

A book that gives voice to the feeling of not quite fitting in, realizing it, and feeling sorry for yourself. A situation that chances are, most of us have found ourselves in at one time or another in our life. 


When Zero looked in the mirror, all she saw was a big, empty hole. When all of the other numbers lined up, they could count, yet despite all her efforts, she had no numerical value. Enviously watching from the sidelines, she compares herself to numbers 1-9 and tries to emulate their shapes, unsuccessfully, and much to her chagrin. 



Feeling deflated, a kind and wise Seven offers some sage advice; “Every number has value. Be open. You’ll find a way.” This reframes Zero’s narrative, and all of a sudden she sees herself as open! Enthused and energized, she realizes that she can add value; 10. 20, 30, 100, 1,000, and beyond! The next time she looked in the mirror—she felt for the first time—whole.
