While ten-year-old Anya faces the difficulties of losing her hair to alopecia, her classmate Keely learns how to stand up for what she knows is right. TEN-YEAR-OLD GIRLS DON'T WEAR WIGS So why is Anya wearing one? That's what Keely's friend Stef wants to know. She even wants Keely to tug on it, just to see if it's real. Keely wants to know too -- but when Anya's wig falls off in front of the whole class, Keely discovers that what she really wants is to help Anya feel better. As for Anya, she just wants her hair to grow back, but no one, not even the doctors, knows whether it ever will. How can she come to terms with her disease when she can't even look in the mirror? In this heart-tugging story of friendship, renowned author Margaret Peterson Haddix introduces readers to a young girl with alopecia areata, a life-altering disease that affects millions of people in the United States alone.
