A feel-good middle grade debut with just a hint of magic about a girl who has a rare disorder that makes the words other people say about her appear on her body. Ever since she was a baby, the words people use to describe Elyse have instantly appeared on her arms and legs. I want to help. And that plot summary won me over. Sixth grade and self-esteem? Deal me in.
Maybe not physically. But the inevitable name-calling, the teasing, and the outright mean words that comes with adolescence leave an invisible mark. Twelve years ago, Elyse was born into the world and immediately pronounced a beautiful baby. Nothing new there; everybody knows babies are beautiful. But then came the other words, the worse ones. They actually bubble up and itch. Add to Bag.
