As moving and edifying as it is fun to read!

This poetic story about brainy and heroic 12-yr old Calliope Snow who suffers from Tourette's Syndrome, stole my heart. I love the true to life relationship between old soul Calli and her immature mom, the cinematic view of the cast of kids in her class (her tenth so far, and counting, mounting), and of course the beautifully true yet age-appropriate way author Ellie Terry presents the insidious nature of this particular neurological disorder. I loved Calli and everybody who loves her. I finished reading this and immediately passed it on to my daughters to read.
