Karla Manternach

I was transported into Meena's story and couldn't put it down. My heart was with Meena, her enthusiasm & creativity, and especially during her journey of discovering epilepsy. Bonus: Meena & I both love rainbows! If you write, this is an excellent mentor text for many skills, especially sensory details. Karla Manternach writes vivid descriptions, readers feel we are there with Meena and the other relatable characters. We feel the journey from many perspectives.
