Overview

What happens when difference is celebrated instead of ridiculed?

Nikolas is about to find out.

Nikolas is a little shape who feels he doesn't fit in. Everyone he knows is a perfect circle, square, or triangle. But he's different. He has curves where others have straight lines, and corners where others have curves, and he can't find any shape in existence that looks like he does. The other shapes make fun of him and insist that he doesn't belong anywhere. But Nikolas is certain that he has a place in this world, so he sets off to find it.

During his search, he meets other shapes who are looking for their place, including Paulina, a trirecovularangle masquerading as a rectangle, and Mateo, a star with squiggly lines and uneven angles in search of someone to fix him.

Though Nikolas and the misfit shapes do indeed find their place, it's nothing like they imagined it would be. And as it turns out, they aren't quite who they thought they were, either.

For ages 7 to 107.

In her inspirational and philosophical illustrated books, she shares all the light that overcoming depression taught her how to see. Two of the most important things that she learned from her thirty-year struggle are that suffering is not a sickness and that healing and happiness are possible-and with the right help, they're inevitable.
