"The next Wonder. Good Different should be required reading." -- Good Morning America

★ "Heartfelt. Kuyatt uses candid lines to present Selah's own experiences, self-knowledge, and eventual self-advocacy." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This moving new novel in verse will build empathy among neurotypical kids for the challenges their autistic peers face, and help autistic kids discover the power of their own voices. Highly recommended." -- A Mighty Girl

"Here's a book that throws that dumb stereotype of the stoic autistic experience out the window -- it's full of deep feelings and soul-searching and is just an absolute joy." -- Common Sense Media

"Relatable, profound and beautifully heartfelt. I loved it." -- Elle McNicoll, author of the Schneider Family Book Award Honor-winning A Kind of Spark

"A powerful addition to literature about the autism experience. Selah is funny, insightful, and poetic in her quest to balance fitting in and staying true to herself." -- Laura Shovan, co-author of Sydney Taylor Notable novel A Place at the Table

"Meg Eden Kuyatt portrays the experience of being an autistic girl with authenticity and heart. Her beautiful verse paints a vivid picture of the challenges and the joys of being autistic. Selah is a hero that readers will root for and remember." -- Sarah Kapit, author of Get a Grip, Vivy Cohen!

"Throughout Good Different, Selah learns it's okay to stand up and it's okay to stand out. Meg Kuyatt's powerful debut finds Selah answering the age-old question: Why be normal when you can soar like a dragon?" -- Eric Bell, author of Alan Cole Is not a Coward
