Forget Me Not | Ellie Terry

Yesterday I had a convo with someone who, like Calliope, was encouraged to hide a medical condition. That may have served us 40 years ago, but it‘s not great for the whole community. I appreciate this book shows all the prejudicial ways we think of and treat people with disabilities. (We need to figure that out sooner rather than later.) At the same time Calliope figures out how best to move forward for herself.
