A Monster Like Me

A Monster Like Me / Wendy S. Swore

Born with a blood tumor covering half her face, 10-year-old Sophie has to endure bullying from kids and insensitive remarks from adults alike. This means that she avoids doing activities in which she cannot hide her face and instead finds refuge in her book about monsters. The school often equally blames the bully and the victim, giving them both the same punishment. Convinced a witch’s curse turned her into a monster, Sophie and her new friend Autumn try to figure out a cure before Sophie’s mom figures out she’s actually a monster and abandons her – just like her dad did. This is a wonderful story about bullying, finding your courage, and self-acceptance. For ages 8-11.
