Classic bait and switch: an author wants to write a book about a certain subject (X), but realizes that few people will buy a book about X, so s/he pretends the book is about a much more popular subject, Y.

Nothing Hurts But My Heart is a book about scoliosis, but it's pretending to be a book about gymnastics. As a book about scoliosis, it's servicable enough: author insert Lisa is a 13-year-old diagnosed with scoliosis, who has to wear a back brace, but learns that it doesn't have to ruin her li
I read this book as a young teen and remember loving it.
I absolutely loved this book! I haven't read it in awhile and I plan to go back and re-read it sometime soon but back when I first read it, I loved it. It was emotional and cute. I recommended it if you want a quick read.

Loved this book as a kid. Hardly remember a single detail beyond the cover blurb, but I loved, loved, loved it.

Didn't even remember the girl's name was Lisa. Funny.
I remember reading this book and loving it! Then I lent it to my teacher or somebody (because her son had scoliosis) and she never gave it back!
