This was a smaller novel but had uite a kick to it It was the perfect dichotomy of both humour and being serious From the beginning this book had me laughing out loud from the humour of the main character Abby along with her brother Dean Additionally in both of their circumstances there was a serious element but the author contrasted that with humour allowing the novel not to become too heavy As mentioned this novel is very humorous but does have some depth to it Some of that depth includes Abby discovering herself and growing from a superficial past as well as Dean's struggles and acceptance of his sexualityOverall this was an incredibly uick read which was made even uick due to the absence of chapter separations I didn't think I would like that this novel didn't have sections divided but instead it aided in the rapidity of my reading the story I couldn't say to myself 'I'll stop reading at the end of this chapter' so I just kept on reading It was a very original story idea and I enjoyed it immensely As a side note for those that enjoyed the novel Going Bovine by Libba Bray you may enjoy this read as well It has been uite a long time since I read that novel but I remember it being similar in the fact that it featured a main character developing an unexpected and unconventional illness and following her journey with humour mixed inThank you to Penguin Random House Canada for sending me a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review

Olls around she's tried every cream and medication the doctors have thrown at her but nothing works When she falls doing a routine cheerleading stunt and slips into a coma her mystery illness goes into overdrive and finally gets diagnosed Hansen's Disease aka leprosy Abby is sent to a facility to recover and deal with this new reality Her many misdiagnoses mean that some permanent damage has been done and all of her plans suddenly come tum. Being on the other side makes you think about who you really were before And let's just say I was not a good Samaritan Abby is a popular cheerleader who gets Hansen’s Disease previously known as leprosy In this book we read about her life goes from where everyone wants to be her to nobody wanting to talk to her I'm going to be honest Abby was a lot to take in and was not a good person She was very self centered and it took a while for her to realize that who she was before wasn't the only person she could be  I had leprosy I was a leper Even though it did take her while to start to change I think that's actually a good thing It made it feel real I don't think feelings things like this would be easy to get over or accept in life Could she have gone about things in a different way Of course But she was also a teenager and when I was a teenager I remember my emotions running so deep and not being able to see the bigger picture of thingsWhile it's not a favorite of mine I can respect it for what it showed me I honestly learned a lot about Hansen's Disease from this novel I do recommend picking this one up especially if you're a contemporary reader Copy provided by Penguin Teen Canada for an honest reviewBlog | Instagram | Twitter

Confessions of a Teenage LeperBling down If she can't even wear high heels any what is the point of living Cheerleading is out the window and she might not even make it to prom PROMBut it's during this recovery that Abby has to learn to live with something even difficult than Hansen's Disease She's becoming aware of who she really was before and what her behavior was doing to others; now she's on the other side of the fence looking in and she doesn't like what she sees. This was an interesting story of Abby a “mean girl” in high school who contracted Hansen’s Disease previously known as leprosy Abby and her friends spent time making fun of others and when she became ill her friends abandoned her When she goes to Louisiana for treatment she learns the real meaning of life The story was good and I’ll recommend it to my students I appreciate the publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to be an early reader in exchange for my fair and honest review
