Description

Praise for Focused:
* Clea's likability, persistence, and ability to bounce back from adversity is truly inspiring. Author Gerber, who has ADHD herself, is able to compassionately and realistically convey the experience in this sweetly appealing story. -- Booklist, starred review

* An accurate and compassionate picture of growing up with ADHD is the icing on the cake of this well-told novel. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred reveiw

Praise forBraced:
* The author doesn't diminish Rachel's difficulties, but at heart her story is uplifting . . . Comparisons to Judy Blume's Deenie might be inevitable, but Rachel stands admirably on her own. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* A masterfully constructed and highly empathetic debut about a different kind of acceptance. -- Booklist, starred review

Rachel's story is about more than straightening a spine; it's about expanding the human heart. Braced earns its place on the shelf with other titles promoting empathy and compassion. -- Kirby Larson, Newbery Honor-winning author of Hattie Big Sky and Audacity Jones Steals the Show

Alyson Gerber's Braced is a rare gem of a novel: intimate and engrossing at once. Rachel is the best kind of character -- vibrant and brave, struggling and strong, and most of all impossible not to root for and relate to. A lovely and deep book that will get readers right in the heart. -- Corey Ann Haydu, author of Rules for Stealing Stars

Braced is an honest, inspirational story about perseverance in the face of adversity. Readers will come away wishing they could be best friends with Rachel and believing that they, too, are stronger than they ever expected. -- Alison Cherry, author of The Classy Crooks Club

Rachel gives us an inspiring look into coping with the challenge of bracing that many of us have trouble putting into words. Join Rachel as she discovers her voice in her brace! This book is an important read for all Curvy Girls and anyone who loves and supports one! -- Leah Stoltz, founder and president, Curvy Girls Foundation
