Forget Me Not

Written by Ellie Terry

Calliope has Tourette syndrome, so she sometimes makes faces or noises that she doesn’t mean to make. After her mother breaks up with yet another boyfriend, she and her mother move again. He tries to hide her TS but it isn’t long before the kids in her new school realize she’s different. Only Calliope’s neighbor, Jinsong, who is also the popular student body president, sees her as she truly is—an interesting person and a good friend. Is he brave enough to take their friendship public despite her Tourette Syndrome and the embarrassment it can cause?
This is an extremely fast read. It is written in poetry/novel in verse style. The reader will discover many things about Tourette syndrome and explore the idea of being true to oneself.

This is written at about a 4th grade level but will probably interest middle grades 4th–8th.
