Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever but disruptive distractions. Ally is afraid to ask for help (after all, how can you cure dumb?) but her newest teacher, Mr. Daniels, sees the bright kid beneath Ally’s troublemaker appearance.With Mr. Daniel’s help, Ally learns that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, she feels free to be herself, and the world starts opening up with possibilities. Ally discovers that there’s a lot more to her—and to her new friends—than a label, and that great minds don’t always think alike.

The author of the beloved One for the Murphys gives readers an emotionally charged, uplifting novel that will speak to anyone who’s ever thought there was something wrong with them because they didn’t fit in.

This paperback edition includes Ally’s sketchbook diary of “Impossible Things,” plus questions for group discussion.
