About the Book

Belle and Chloe are loving twin sisters who do everything together. But one day, tragedy strikes when Belle is burned by a pot of boiling soup. With third-degree burns on several areas of her body, she must spend a few months in the hospital for treatment and later have surgery to reduce her scars.

A story about trauma and recovery, this picture book for children shares the story of the accident, the impact the event has on Belle’s self-image, her relationship with her sister and the rest of the family, and the value of family, support, and love during her recovery.
