Lexie is new to grade three and she has a secret. She has epilepsy. Worried that she'll be thought of as different, she shyly avoids class discussion and recess (where she fears she will be teased for wearing a helmet). But hiding her condition proves to be dangerous when she is pressured into eating food that her treatment diet doesn't allow, and must stay home for several days.As time passes, Lexie gains confidence and makes friends among her classmates, even giving a presentation about epilepsy to the entire class. One dreaded day she actually has a seizure in the schoolyard -- and learns that good friends can be trusted to understand and accept who you are, and even help out in times of trouble.
