Bravo for Jennifer Gibson's Sway! - A Literary Classics Seal of Approval Recipient

Jessie is a hearing impaired high school student who has endured merciless bullying at the hands of her classmates for far too long.  As if that were not enough, some of her teachers are impatient with her because of the additional effort required to accommodate her disability.  All she really wants is to just fit in, but that's not easily done given her circumstances.

Based on a true story, Sway is the empowering story of a young-adult who rises above her circumstances and does so with a charm and finesse that is both touching and inspiring.  Jessie's encounter with a young man named Ethan is a significant component of this story as she finds true friendship with a sweet romantic element that makes Sway all the more appealing.

Jennifer Gibson's depiction of Jessie's story is insightful and moving.  This book comes highly recommended and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
