    Icy Sparks is Anne of Green Gables with Tourette Syndrome I loved the character, but wasn t super crazy about the story The book is divided into three parts The first part was kind of painful because it shows her at 10 years old first beginning to manifest Tourette s, and becoming an outcast in her community it s the 1950 s in rural Kentucky and nobody had a clue about Tourette s I really liked the second part, which induced me to keep reading the book saying what it s about would be a spo Icy Sparks is Anne of Green Gables with Tourette Syndrome I loved the character, but wasn t super crazy about the story The book is divide...

    Several times throughout this book I asked myself why I was still reading it, and after finishing it the only answer I have is I was bored and kept hoping it would get better It never really did Don t get me wrong if it was THAT horrible, I m sure I would ve given up but I wouldn t recommend it to anyone.The premise, that of a young girl growing up in Appalachia in the 50 s with Tourette s syndrome, sounded interesting and promising, but the writing isunskilled The dialogue ranges be Several times throughout this book I asked myself why I was still reading it, and after finishing it the only answer I have is I was bored and kept hoping it would get better It never really did Don t get me wrong if it was THAT horrible, I m sure I would ve given up but I wouldn t recommend it to anyone.The premise, that of a young girl growing up in Appalachia in the 50 s with Tourette s syndrome, sounded interesting and promising, but the writing isunskilled The dialogue ranges between quaint and believable to no one actually talks like that, ever Gestures and body language are ALWAYS described in an awkward, baffling manner Miss Emily centered her hands on top of the table and pushed up what the hell is that illustrating No, she is not trying to lift the table in that scene, Miss Emily is just chatting I also found the middle portion...

    When I read the back of the book cover to Adam he gave a big dramatic sigh and declared, You read the most depressing books in the world A book about a young girl growing up with undiagnosed Tourettes Syndrome, a story where the heroine feels completely unable to adapt to the world around her, a girl with no mother, raised by her loving but confused grandparents, a child who s only friend is a 400 pound adult, a stint in a mental hospital where the main character struggles and still remains u When I read the back of the book cover to Adam he gave a big dramatic sigh and declared, You read the most depressing books in the world A book about a young girl growing up with undiagnosed Toure...

    3.5 stars rounded to 4 stars Thought provoking but somewhat repetitive on the issues addressed I would think this would be appropriate for a tween First book I ve ever read that character has Tourette syndrome so that was interesting.
