Publisher's Summary

Rachel Brooks is excited for the new school year. She's finally earned a place as a forward on her soccer team. Her best friends make everything fun. And she really likes Tate, and she's pretty sure he likes her back. After one last appointment with her scoliosis doctor, this will be her best year yet.  

Then the doctor delivers some terrible news: The sideways curve in Rachel's spine has gotten worse, and she needs to wear a back brace 23 hours a day. The brace wraps her in hard plastic from shoulder blades to hips. It changes how her clothes fit, how she kicks a ball, and how everyone sees her - even her friends and Tate. But as Rachel confronts all the challenges the brace presents, the biggest change of all may lie in how she sees herself.   

Written by a debut author who wore a brace of her own, Braced is the inspiring, heartfelt story of a girl learning to manage the many curves life throws her way.

wonderful

I am a 11 years old and I am going back into my own brace and this book done more for me than any book could ever do for a person. This is not the first time I have been in a brace so this book has reminded me out all the challenges I am about to face and has given me positive things fro me to tell myself when I am down 8r upset. If you have scoliosis then I recom3nd this book for you.😊😋

Braced by Alyson Gerber

This is a great book. Because I love books that have the main character go against a thing or another character that is going against him or her.This book is just like this.

Read as an adult, so different perspectives

Authors nailed teen girl stress and angst. I like how it was not a complete story happy ending but character grew.
