By Karol Ruth Silverstein

An #OwnVoices contemporary debut with humor and heart

Fourteen-year-old Ricky Bloom has just been diagnosed with a life-changing chronic illness. Her days consist of cursing everyone out, skipping school - which has become a nightmare - daydreaming about her crush, Julio, and trying to keep her parents from realizing just how bad things are. But she can't keep The Charade up forever. Ricky's afraid, angry, alone, and one suspension away from repeating ninth grade. She'll do whatever it takes to move forward - even if it means changing the person she's become. Maybe asking for help isn't the worst thing in the world. Maybe accepting her circumstances doesn't have to mean giving up.
