Overview

An unlikely hero's story about a young girl diagnosed with Celiac disease. After a series of annoying tests and ill-informed doctors, an accident occurs that transforms our main character into Celiac Girl ! Celiac Girl is a super human girl that has the power to visually see gluten and can convert others who know nothing of the disease into informed, health conscious citizens. Our hero is involved in an ongoing battle against Gluten in order to obtain a Gluten Free City. Celiac Girl's origins stem from the idea that diseases do not only need to be looked at as weaknesses, they can also develop into strengths, and in this case, superpowers. This is one of many books in a series designed to focus on a variety of diseases and illnesses that individuals have and how their struggles eventually lead to great triumphs. Celiac girl is geared to all ages and genders but especially to those who have or know someone that has Celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. Celiacs Unite !!!

This book is my life in a comic. I can't stop reading it! A lot of "inside jokes" amongst fellow Celiacs
Gluten Free Spirit - Michael Jacobs
Such a clever concept. I will be purchasing a copy for everyone I know that is gluten free.
