“I’m no different than any other kid. I m just a GF kid”;, says Paris, matter-of-factly. She is the spunky eleven-year-old narrator of this story for kids with celiac disease who must eat gluten-free (GF) foods. With equal parts humor and directness, Paris gets right down to business explaining what it is like to have celiac disease. (Paris’s mom wrote the story, full of her daughter’s wisecracking comments, and her dad drew the funny, cartoony illustrations.) Ages 8 and up.
