Review:

An insightful, honest, and ultimately uplifting account of one girl's battle with scoliosis. Elizabeth Golden's book is filled with lessons about courage, acceptance, grace, and the importance of family and friends.

Elizabeth describes how she didn t let scoliosis affect her outlook on life, just as I didn t let it affect mine. I hope that any girl facing an illness will read this book and be inspired. --Maritza Correia, Olympic Medalist

Having dealt with my own scoliosis since I was a teenager, I applaud Elizabeth Golden for writing this insightful book and sharing her story with teenagers and their families. --JoBeth Williams, Film and Television Actress
