Forget Me Not, by Ellie Terry
Publication: March 14, 2017, by Feiwel and Friends
Genre: Middle Grade Fiction, Contemporary
A girl with Tourette syndrome starts a new school and tries to hide her quirks in this debut middle-grade novel in verse.
Calliope June has Tourette syndrome. Sometimes she can't control the noises that come out of her mouth, or even her body language. When she and her mother move yet again, she tries to hide her TS. But soon the kids in her class realize she's different. Only her neighbor, who is also the class president, sees her as she truly is—a quirky kid, and a good friend. But is he brave enough to take their friendship public?
As Callie navigates school, she must also face her mother's new relationship and the fact that she might be moving again—just as she's starting to make friends and finally accept her differences. This story of being true to yourself will speak to a wide audience.
It's been a while since I've done a WoW post, but I was on vacation (which I'll give a HUGE recap of eventually) and have been exploring other reads, but I'm backkkkk. Forget Me Not by Ellie Terry sounds like such a heartbreaking, beautiful story that will be perfect for my sister (a middle grade reader), myself, and everyone around. I love this cover and everything that is explained of in the synopsis.
