This book give a little bit of insight into what it might be like if you had Tourette Syndrome. Calli is a young girl who has Tourette's, but she's desperately trying to hide it b/c she's embarrassed about what her body sometimes does. At her new school, Calli befriends a boy and with his help starts to finally accept herself for who she is. I love that this book teaches you to be true to yourself.

A really sweet and innocent middle grade romance (great for older elementary school and younger middle schoolers). Calli is diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome, and also grapples with OCD and anxiety. Her symptoms mirror the author's experience with Tourette's symptoms, which for everyone looks very different. There is a lot of examples of bullying told in alternative viewpoints that switch from verse to prose.

This is a super quick own voices read about a young girl forced to move through out her childhood, left alone and misunderstood especially due to her Tourette Syndrome, and how her possible new friend has to battle his own views on normality and social acceptance to become a better person. A sweet and lovely middle grade read that is good for any reader actually.

Beautifully written story about a middle school aged girl who has Torette's Syndrome who keeps moving schools before she can ever make a friend. Told from two points of view, poetic and paragraphs that are a joy to read. Love this compassionate story from this talented author.

I was able to finish reading this book in one sit. It took me a bit time to adjust to the different styles between the two characters, but it was easy for me to be drawn in the book once I got past the different styles. This book is about a girl who has Tourette syndrome and her tics affected attempts of fitting in because kids thought she was weird. But her neighbor/classmate noticed her and was able to look past the "weird" body/face movements because he saw her for who she was. It felt authentic and I soon realized why: Author Ellie Terry mentioned that she has Tourette's at the end of the book. A good read and it helps give you a better understanding of what some people go through with certain conditions and/or disabilities.
