From New York Times Bestselling author Natalie Loyd comes Hummingbird, a new middle school magical and inclusive story of trying to fit in. Twelve-year-old Olive has osteogenesis imperfect, also known as brittle bone disease, and is always seen as the fragile child in a wheelchair. She’s been homeschooled all her life but makes the case to her parents and convinces them that it’s time she enroll at Macklemore Elementary. When her first day doesn’t go according to plan, Olive begins to worry her chances of making new friends will disappear.
As her hopes diminish, Olive learns of a magical hummingbird that grants wishes to those who are worthy living near her school. Armed with her trusty wheelchair and some unlikely allies, she sets off on a a life-changing journey. Lloyd draws on her own experience with osteogenesis imperfect to bring an authentic and powerful voice to the forefront in Hummingbird.
