Meet Janine. She is one of a kind. She talks to her imaginary friends, reads the dictionary for fun, knows lots of big words and remembers, things-lots of things. She even has her own style of cheering! Some kids think she's strange and want her to change. They don’t want her to come to their COOL party unless she changes. Will she? 
Or will she stay her spectacular self? 
In this charming story, Maryann Cocca-Leffler uses her own daughter as inspiration for a delightfully spunky character. Janine Leffler, who gave her mother permission to tell her story about being a child with disabilities, focuses on the positive while navigating life with disabilities. She has become a role model to children and adults, encouraging them to focus on abilities and promoting respect, tolerance, and kindness.
