Thirteen Weeks by Shontelleiya Sherree SuarezShandi
Preface
A fictional story set in the central California city of San Luis Obispo, describing the growing pains and dental traumas of a very active and sensitive blind teen girl. Will her thirteenth birthday bring on more health issues or will she find that becoming a teen also opens up the possibility of romance ? How will Shantelle and her illness-ridden family cope, and what about her sixteen year old high school volunteer assistant, Sarah ? This is a story of disability and disease, but also of tremendous courage and deep love, capable of uplifting us all.
