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. Coping 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 beautifully illustrated story about coping with 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. The story is inspired by the author's own childhood experience.
