Dear Isaac Newton, You're Ruining My Life

(4) 4-6 Truth Trendon blames "gravity, the force pulling everything (my spine included) toward the earth" for her scoliosis. Truth hides her brace from classmates as she starts junior high, and her deception leads to some funny moments and eventually to a predictable message about self-acceptance; some peers have secrets as well. Truth's first-person narration often sounds like an adult voice in this light problem novel.
