"Dit schrijnende verhaal van Gwyn Hyman Rubio vertelt het verhaal van het tienjarige weesmeisje Icy Sparks dat bij haar grootouders in Kentucky opgroeit. Haar leven wordt er niet gemakkelijker op als blijkt dat ze aan het syndroom van Gilles de la Tourette lijdt. Icy strijdt met enorme felheid tegen de vernederingen en het isolement en probeert haar weg terug te vinden in de maatschappij. Icy Sparks is een aangrijpend verhaal over angst, liefde en worstelingen van een jong meisje met het syndroom van Gilles de la Tourette."

Wel een aardig boek, maar niet wat ik ervan verwacht had...

I met my friend who gave me this book in Tilburg. She has moved to Belgium and I to the eastern part of Holland. So we don't see us as much as we would like. The book has made a long journey this summer.
I took it to Corsica (French island), where we were spending our holidays. Both my daughters (14 and 16 years old), my husband and sister read the book. I was very interested in the story about a girl having the syndrom of Gilles de la Tourette. I work with retarded kids at the moment. Being healthy in your mind and having to deal with this kind of disease must be very hard. I liked the book very much.
I will take the book to Poland, where I will be spending my autum-holidays in a wellnesshotel. There I will give it to another dutch friend who lives in Ede, Holland.
