What if she messes up? Or worse, if she can't bring herself to speak up, like sometimes happens when facing bullies at school?Stacey will learn that win or lose . . her words are powerful, and sometimes perseverance is the most important word of all.

An inspiring author, Abrams shares her love of words and how she learned to speak up. This does not tell the story about when she was turned away from a spelling bee because the person at the door looked at her and thought she probably couldn't spell. #everbodybooks #spellingbees
