The Silver-Horned Girl

About the Book
When a girl suddenly wakes up with a beeping silver horn growing out of her head, her normal life is changed. Suddenly she feels scared, left out, and bullied by her peers.
Designed as a conversation starter for facing anxiety, The Silver-Horned Girl demonstrates to teens how similarly insecurity affects everyone. Whether they experience a visible difference or one less obvious, no one should have to suffer in silence.
