I first this book some where around age 15-16 and i dont understand y ppl dont believe that a person can b bullied and ostracized that severly by both peers and adults well im hear to say from my own personal exp that it can happen! Throughout elementary school i was teased and picked on a lot by my peers and i didnt think it could get any worse until i reached sixth grade. I was sadly mistaken and any dreams of an easier time were shattered after the first week in school when i came to the conclusion that my sixth grade teacher hated me!!! Most ppl would see it as a child stretching it a bit much and go there's no way a teacher can hate you. Well mine did and i know this for a fact. Besides the little incidents throughout the year the worst thing she did 2 me was trying to keep me from going on our school's graduation because of my illness that kept me out of school a lot. But i had earned that trip i was the only child of my grade w/ a high b averge who spent about a quarter of the school year in the hospital. So as i was saying it is possible for things like what Icy Sparks went through to happen and for all of you who dont believe it, you need to open your eyes and remember there's a larger world out there than the place you live and not everyone grows up witj kind and adoring ppl around them comstantly

I loved this book!!! As a high school student it is fun to get away from the traditional books such as Huckleberry Finn. Don't get me wrong, that book wasn't horrible, but i felt it lacked emotion. I really felt that I understood what Icy was going through. The horrifying details of her symptoms and her surroundings will leave just about any reader swept off their feet. Read this book!!!

Definitly the best book I've ever read, and I've read many! This book is bound to be future literature in English classes everywhere! It warms your heart and soothes the soul! Get this book... you will not put it down...

As an avid reader, I must say that this book is original and extremly well written. One of the best books that has come out in years. What a story. I highly recommend this book to anyone. Most of us are 'different' which by nature calls for isolation and endurance of deep humiliation and hardship. When one learns of the angels that are placed in our lives to help us (Miss Emily) we really see that although most of the world is basically evil and terrible. Love really does not occur without pain. But in truth the only love is self-love. Once of the best coming of age stories in literature, end of story.

Heart warming emotinal book! Definatly puts you in another persons shoes and shows you how it feels to be them amd to be diffrent from everyone else and have people look at you like you dont belong.

I had high expectations for this book. I have read most of Oprahs Book Club selections and liked most of them. That's one of the reasons I went ahead and purchased this one. This just is not a very good story, it drags and is boring.

This book was selected for all members of my book club to read for National Disabilities Awareness Month, otherwise I probably would never have read book. Having said that, I am very glad I read it. Hard to put down. Highly recommend it!!

I really enjoyed this story. The imperfections we have as humans can cause us pain or embarassment. The author tells a story about a little girl's experience with her imperfections that is sometimes, sad, quirky and funny, but in the end, triumphant.
