Sticks and Stones

On the first day of school, Patricia breaks out in a rash and is called “Cootie” by her classmates. It seems like the year will be a disaster — until she meets Thom and Ravenne. Each of the friends have their own talent. Thom, with his long legs and graceful manner, loves to dance ballet, earning him the name “Sissy Boy.” Ravenne makes kits and paints on fabric, but she’s shy that people call her “Her Ugliness.”

Thom, Ravenne, and Patricia are bullied by their classmates, but the three friends to band together for support. And for years after that fateful year, the trio encourage each other to stay true to themselves and achieve success in their passions. Inspired by beloved author Patricia Polacco's childhood memories of one pivotal year in elementary school and how three inseparable friends stopped at nothing to achieve their dreams.
