I Have Scoliosis too : A Story of Friendship and Hope throughout Scoliosis
by Valeria Leonova and Monica Munn and Michelle Spray




Overview -
"I Have Scoliosis too" is a quick introduction to scoliosis and the emotions of being "different". It's a picture book geared toward the younger audience. Hope is the main character who doesn't have to make this journey alone because she meets Emma. Emma loved wearing her back brace because she said it made her back feel straighter and she felt taller wearing it, but Hope thought she was just plain crazy. The two go on their journeys together. One curve progresses while the other does not and they are there for each other. This book is a must-have for any child coping with a scoliosis diagnosis and a great beginning book to read for younger children before reading this author's detailed memoir on the topic for teens. - "This story of Hope and Emma is one that needs to be heard. All children can relate to feeling different. Stories like this one show kids that who they are is who they are meant to be and that they are not alone. This is for all kids to read. Children seeing what others experience and knowing that they are not alone in their struggles is of great importance. Children of all ages can develop scoliosis, and the side effects are not all physical. Scoliosis can lead to self-consciousness, feelings of isolation, and so many more negative feelings. When people with scoliosis, or any condition, know that there is someone like them going through something similar, it makes the world of difference ... Your 'Emma' is waiting for you with open arms. You are not alone " - Julianne Martin, teen Leader for Curvy Girls of Connecticut, a network of peer-run scoliosis support groups for girls around the world. - "This book resonates with me on so many levels. Both my daughters are diagnosed with Scoliosis and I wish their had been a book out for them that was age appropriate at the time of diagnosis. This will be a great book for any young girl newly diagnosed." -Page King, Scoliosis Parent
