Hey everyone! I hope you had a happy Easter/Passover/whatever it is you celebrate, and a happy Spring as well! I finished this book fairly recently (something else happened on that same day, which I’ll tell you about later), and I loved it! I know I say this every single #$%*ing time, but I hope you enjoy it too. Really, I do.
Forget Me Not
Calliope June is moving to yet another town because her mother broke up with yet another boyfriend. Calliope is sick of moving, and now she has to go to a new school. She must face the struggles of an ordinary kid and then some-she has Tourette’s syndrome. Calliope often finds it hard to control her various tics, be it humming, clapping, making faces, and occasionally frog croaking, which causes her to be the target of mean jokes and bullying. Only Jinsong, her next-door neighbor, sees her as she really is. Will Calliope truly be accepted?
This novel was absolutely wonderful, from the switching perspectives of Calliope and Jinsong (one was in verse, the other was normal. Cool, huh?), and the imaginative voices of both characters. Forget Me Not is a success!
Okay, before I go, here is the amazing thing that happened on Thursday….
