Elijah Fischer thought high school might be different.
Kids have bullied him because of his Tourette's syndrome for as long as he can remember.
The only thing different about today is that the new girl at school got to see it happen.
Could his luck get any worse?
Sadie Anderson was hoping to make new friends at her new school.
This guy definitely looked like he needed a friend.
If he really knew her, would he feel the same?
Authors note: This novella can be read as a standalone but will make more sense if it's read after Love Claimed, but before Jude's Song.

This book sucks me in pretty instantly – it rotates first person POVs, between a teenaged boy and a teenaged girl. They each have their own physical imperfections and are used to being bullied as a result. While I wasn’t bullied, I can relate to them both. I was a high school student once; I’ve seen all the crap they go through… I love these characters – I love how they turned their own experience into something positive rather than some of the much more morbid endings we see too often in real life. It gets better – sure – but these kids didn’t wait for that to happen on its own. At such a young age, they knew just what to do and developed their own artistic talents all the while. Brilliant. It felt feasible and real. Sadie and Elijah are both brilliant, lovable characters. Elijah’s been bullied his whole school career and still has an overall positive outlook and doesn’t let himself get too discouraged. Sadie doesn’t seem to care what anyone things, with an inner beauty and strength that are hard to find in anyone, let alone teenagers. These characters are strong. Well developed, they seem age-appropriate. The book itself is beautiful with perfectly themed formatting and professional editing/proofing. I wouldn’t change a thing. It captured everything it needed to, and in few words so this is perfect for a quick read. This was a short read - very positive and beautiful. Crawford does really well with a YA-type setting and a good job with both characters’ voices. The two come together and do amazing things, Likely anyone could find inspiration in this fun, short read.
