Reviews

"Terry, who has Tourette syndrome herself, offers enormous insight into an often-misunderstood condition, writing in verse for Calliope's chapters and prose for Jinsong's. Her poetic explorations of Calliope's anxiety and Jinsong's moral struggles are honest and moving." --Publishers Weekly

"This heartfelt, multivoice story with a meaningful message about friendship and acceptance is perfect for kids who appreciate realistic, character driven stories, such as Rebecca Stead's Goodbye Stranger (2015)." --Booklist

"Written in a patchwork of prose poetry and free verse, Terry's narrative deftly represents the reality of TS in its fullness. It works to deconstruct common misconceptions, such as that those who have TS have a propensity to swear, and sheds light on the raw confusion and the frightening nature of a physical experience that is utterly unpredictable . . . This exploration of Calli's neurological disorder and her struggle to find her place will stay in the hearts and minds of readers for a long time...." --School Library Journal

"Terry's debut novel is a rare treat--a beautiful story of middle grade friendship, crushes, accepting differences, and how to deal with the school bullies. Terry's use of figurative language and symbolism is magical. It will offer lessons in tolerance, acceptance, and kindness toward those different than themselves." --School Library Connection
