"Full of heart and candor, Francis teaches us that loving your body isn't perfect or easy, but it's always worth it."--Julie Murphy, New York Times bestselling author of DUMPLIN'
"A beautiful picture book about self-acceptance and finding joy in a world that doesn't always make that easy for kids who are different: heartwarming and uplifting--two qualities we all need more of these days." --#1 New York Times bestselling author Rick Riordan
"As beautifully illustrated as it is written, Francis Discovers Possible is a wonderful story about facing some of our first thoughtless comments, and remembering who we are even when we're hurt. In a world where more and more children are learning to name their feelings, Latimer expertly offers a common narrative of childhood shame, and offers the healing capability of our own curiosity."--New York Times bestselling author Ashley C. Ford
