Sponsored by A Face for Picasso by Ariel Henley
At only eight months old, identical twin sisters Ariel and Zan were diagnosed with Crouzon syndrome––a rare condition where the bones in the head fuse prematurely. Growing up, they underwent numerous procedures that changed their appearances and saved their lives. While the physical aspect of their condition was painful, it was nothing compared to the emotional toll of navigating life with a facial difference. In this poignant young adult memoir, Ariel speaks her truth on her own terms, exploring sisterhood and the strength it takes to put your life, and yourself, back together time and time again.
