Forget Me Not | Ellie Terry
28 posts | 28 read | 19 to read
Astronomy-loving Calliope June has Tourette syndrome, so she sometimes makes faces or noises that she doesn't mean to make. When she and her mother move yet again, she tries to hide her TS. But it isn't long before the kids at her new school realize she's different. Only Calliope's neighbor, who is also the popular student body president, sees her as she truly is--an interesting person and a good friend. But is he brave enough to take their friendship public? As Calliope navigates school, she must also face her mother's new relationship and the fact that they might be moving--again--just as she starts to make friends and finally accept her differences. Ellie Terry's affecting debut will speak to a wide audience about being true to oneself.

Read Harder Challenge 2021: Read An Own Voices Book About Disability

“Written in a patchwork of prose poetry and free verse, Terry‘s narrative deftly represents the reality of TS in its fullness. It works to deconstruct common misconceptions, such as that those who have TS have a propensity to swear, and sheds light on the raw confusion and the frightening nature of a physical experience that is utterly unpredictable . . . This exploration of↩️

A few of my struggling readers devoured this book this year, and I had to give it a try. What a great story about acceptance and friendship. 😊 With alternating points of view and varying structure of prose and story, this was a great read that was hard to put down. The main character has Tourette‘s Syndrome and struggles with acceptance and her mother. Definitely something I‘d recommend to students this upcoming school year!

This is a sad story about a girl with Tourette‘s who moves all the time every time her mama breaks up with her boyfriend her mom forces her to move and keep her hair cut extra short. If you would like an emotional story that gets happier in the end then read this book

This was such a fantastic book!! I read the whole thing today start to finish. I've never read a book where the MC has Tourette syndrome so this was a really great read for me.

What a wonderful story! The middle school issues are believable, Calliope and Jinsong‘s friendship touched my heart, and we get an authentic story of a girl dealing with a syndrome not often found in middle grade novels. I would have liked a different ending, but this was perfect, #huggable .

ReadingRover This looks so good! 5y
Peddler410 @ReadingRover it really was! And the author has Tourette syndrome herself, hence the authentic story. 5y

I wish I liked this one more than I do 😕

The primary narrator, Calli, feels very authentic and seems to echo a lot of the author's experiences. It's great to see an #ownvoices middle grade story about a girl with Tourette syndrome.

But the secondary narrator, Jinsong, rings hollow to me, and the focus on crushes feels too old for the rest of the book-- especially because the cover is trying to sell it as friendship...

Wife Pretty cover! 6y

Just started and already obsessed. Two perspectives. Hers is in poetry format and his is prose. She has Tourette Syndrome. He's the most popular boy in school. She just wants to make friends.
