FORGET ME NOT by Ellie Terry
Calliope is starting at her tenth new school since her mom moves them around a lot while chasing after men, but in St. George, Utah, she makes a new friend who accepts her Tourette syndrome and she hopes this time they can stay for real. Jinsong comes across as a little too good to be true for a middle school guy (popular, student body president, doesn't judge Calli at all), though it makes for an uplifting story this way. The dual points-of-view in verse (Calli) and prose (Jinsong) give nice perspective and make this a quick read. This upper MG novel also give a voice to a person with a lesser known condition along with anxiety and OCD. (Feiwel and Friends, 2017)
