The Amazing Edie Eckhart: Book 1
About this deal
I loved hearing how Edie described herself and her life and the fact that the dilemmas revolved around all the usual pre-teen stuff.

I hope this isn’t the end of Rosie Jones writing as I think she could take this character further or introduce us to other children who have additional needs. This is a brilliant coming of age book about the trials of starting secondary school, making new friends and finding out who you really are. The book is written in the format of Eddie’s (main characters) personal diary in which she talks about her CP and how it impacts her life but she also talks about the fun, hard, exciting and sometimes boring things in life just like any average teenager.I liked the messages about giving peoplea chance and getting to know them, and following your heart and not doing something just becauseit’s what everyone else seems to be doing.

Initially reluctant to be without her BFF, Edie argues with the school, but as Oscar begins trying out new hobbies, making new friends, and even getting a girlfriend, Edie begins to wonder if she had been allowing her disability and her reliance on Oscar as an excuse not to push her own limits. Don’t get me wrong those types of books mentioned above are really important and absolutely have there purpose. year old Frankie is having to grow up quickly to help her mum with her developing MS - and now that one of her bullies is starting to strike up an actual friendship with her, Frankie's starting to think it might be something a little more.I have so many FEELINGS right now and they're all good feelings (except for the longing to have had books like this on my shelf when I was younger, maybe then I'd have come to terms with becoming disabled easier).
