A deeply emotional five stars. I had--have, I suppose--scoliosis. I wore a brace for a year and a half and then had surgery. Sometimes this book made me frustrated because, as usual, it wasn't like that in that I didn't have the friends, the romance, that kind of emotional support. (I also don't remember being made fun of --and my brace had a neck ring--or being in much pain.) But when I finished the book, I just started sobbing.

(I sort of wish the book had been about her mom instead. Not really dealing with it, not being angry, just accepting it. That's what it was like for me. I'm realizing now that maybe that's not so good.)
