Then Emilie's mom enrolls her in public school, and Emilie goes from studying at home in her pj's to halls full of strangers. To make matters worse, Emilie is paired with starting point guard Chatham York for a major research project on Emily Dickinson. She should be ecstatic when Chatham shows interest, but she has a problem. She hasn't told anyone about her epilepsy.
Emilie lives in fear her recently adjusted meds will fail and she'll seize at school. Eventually, the worst happens, and she must decide whether to withdraw to safety or follow a dead poet's advice and "dwell in possibility".
From Golden Heart award-winning author McCall Hoyle comes The Thing with Feathers, a story of overcoming fears, forging new friendships, and finding a first love, perfect for fans of Jennifer Niven, Robyn Schneider, and Sharon M. Draper.

A Beautiful Read and Amazing Journey
loved this book and the journey it takes you on. I connected so much with the heroine. I don't have epilepsy but I understand struggling with things outside your control and fighting depression. I especially connected with the hiding of secrets because if they're found out, you won't be seen as "normal" any more.
I really enjoyed how the author took the stereotypes we think are true from movies and twisting them around, making them real people.
Normally I find coming of age stories kind of boring, but this one held me spellbound.
