    I received a free ARC of this lovely 2017 book. FORGET ME NOT is a lyrical novel that takes its place in the growing shelf of middle grade novels in verse. Told in two voices, the poems incorporate a rhythm that mimics the tics and OCD of the main character's disability, Tourette's Syndrome. Despite...

The verse format works perfectly. I want to get posters made of some of Calliope's poems. Also, the name "Calliope" -- did you know...

    I read this lovely book in one sitting on a plane ride. The writing was so beautiful, especially the parts in verse. Ellie Terry did such an amazing job of describing Tourette syndrome and all of the symptoms, anxieties, fears, embarrassments, and pains that go with the disorder. And it's no surpris...

I find myself extremely moved when I read ...
