The blog for books and movies

Astronomy-loving Calliope June has Tourette syndrome, so she sometimes makes faces or noises that she doesn’t mean to make. When she and her mother move yet again, she tries to hide her TS. But it isn’t long before the kids at her new school realize she’s different. Only Calli’s neighbor, who is also the popular student body president, sees her as she truly is—an interesting person and a good friend. But is he brave enough to take their friendship public?

As Calli navigates school, she must also face her mother’s new relationship and the fact that she might be moving, again, just as she starts to make friends and finally accept her differences.

  1. I had this book for book club this year and I loved it. It is about a girl with Tourettes and she just moved house and it gets harder for her as every time her single mum breaks up with her new boyfriend they have to move. I think I found this so interesting because I’ve seen people on tv with this syndrome and even the author (Ellie Terry) has Tourettes. I love this book so much as she meets a boy who stands up to her and usually it’s hard for Callie to find true friends. If I had to rate this book it would have to be a ⅘ as I loved reading about all the struggles and challenges Callie faced and how she got through them and it inspired me to be more grateful for the thing we have as her life can be so hard at times.
