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 breaks some awful news: The sideways curve in Rachel's spine has gotten worse, and she needs to wear a back brace twenty-three hours a day. The brace wraps he rin 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 may lie in how she sees herself.
