Reviews

Expertly crafted, infused with emotional resonance and populated with flawed characters who grow and change as the story unfolds. Ariel's richly detailed perspective allows the reader to deeply understand the trauma of experiencing so many difficult medical procedures, as well as the lifelong impact of bullying and discrimination... A must-read on self-love, beauty, disability, visibility, and community. --Booklist, starred review

Complex and searing... This smart, richly detailed memoir is a compelling meditation on identity as well as a much-needed challenge to an ableist system. --Publishers Weekly
