Icy Sparks--Gwyn Hyman Rubio

(This is an old review, from 2006. I am trying to move all of my book reviews to this blog).

Genre: Realistic Fiction
Year Published: 2001
Pages: 336
Rating: 4/5

This was a great book--very unusual, but an enthralling and heartwrenching read. Icy Sparks has Tourette's Syndrome, during a time before the disease was understood even as much as it is now. Misunderstood by the patrons of her small, southern town, Icy--with the support of her family and a close friend who is no stranger to feeling different--struggles to find a place for herself.
