Book Review #88
Reaching For Sun by Tracie Vaughn Zimmer
Rating: three stars (out of four)

Josie has cerebral palsy, she tries to forget, but her mother is constantly reminding her.  It's not until a new boy moves into the neighborhood that Josie sees what it is like to have a friend, someone who treats her like he doesn't notice anything different about her.

This book was pretty sweet.  It was written entirely in poems and I loved how the author described Josie's world in only a couple words or sentences and yet you understood exactly what she meant.  It was a fairly quick read and I thought that it had a lovely message and would definitely recommend it.
