The moment I read that the protagonist had scoliosis, I couldn't help but strain my finger for clicking on it so fast. I am a 14-year old with a 38-degree curve in my lower spine. So yes, I have scoliosis and I certainly hope this story covers how terrible it can be.

I just want to thank you for writing this, I've had scoliosis for two years now and until now I have never read about a character with scoliosis. I just wanted to let you how much it means to me.

I was diagnosed with scoliosis about 8 or 9 years ago. I had to wear a Boston brace for 2 1/2 years while I went through puberty. Now my scoliosis is stable. I may have to have surgery later in life though. I hate having scoliosis. It’s awful and my back hurts almost everyday.

This so sweet and a great way to memorialize your friend <3 I have scoliosis as well but it's not very severe, and I've heard of how painful it is when it's really bad. Congrats on making the longlist :)
