📚 “Sick Kids In Love” by Hannah Moskowitz 📚

This book was one of the best I’ve ever read that explored discrimination against invisible illnesses and ableism. It also was not just a romance, so I would recommend it for anyone who deals with an invisible illness.

The synopsis:

Isabel has one rule: no dating. It's easier—It's safer—It's better—for the other person. She's got issues. She's got secrets. She's got rheumatoid arthritis. But then she meets another sick kid. He's got a chronic illness Isabel's never heard of, something she can't even pronounce. He understands what it means to be sick. He understands her more than her healthy friends. He understands her more than her own father who's a doctor. Isabel has one rule: no dating. It's complicated—It's dangerous—It's never felt better—to consider breaking that rule for him.

Book recommendation for chronic illness

Hi everyone!! I thought I would share a book I have found, it is called Sick Kids in Love by Hannah Moskowitz. It is a about a young girl with RA (Rheumatiod Arthritis) and a young boy with Gaucher disease who fall in love. It’s is a ya novel I would say and is very sappy and cute but actually portrays living with a chronic illness pretty well and shares some feeling that are true to life. This book has made me cry tears of joy so many times (I’m a big crier so take that part with a grain of salt😆) but it is truly beautiful and I highly suggest it to people who have a chronic illness and to anyone really!!!! #ChronicIllness
