Izumi refuses to act as society demands a young girl from a noble family should. Instead, she counts toads and seeds and especially caterpillars her friends as well as the scruffy boys who bring insects to her window. She insists on thinking for herself, and she won't blacken her teeth or pluck her eyebrows. Will her parents die of embarrassment as the whole town gossips about her? Slowly, she wins the grudging respect of those who are willing to look beneath the surface and see a girl who is clever and won't hide her gifts under society's rules.
