When her social studies teacher assigns each student a project to change the world for the better along with an oral report, Daisy fears the class bully—who calls her Woodworm— will make fun of her lisp. Still, she decides to help Sorrel fulfill his dream of becoming a YouTube fashion celebrity despite their parents’ refusal to allow him on social media.

With the help of her best friend Poppy, and Miguel—the most popular boy in school and her former enemy—Daisy launches Sorrel’s publicity campaign. But catastrophe strikes when her parents discover him online along with hateful comments from a cyberbully.

If Daisy has any hope of changing the world, she’ll have to regain her family’s trust and face her fears of public speaking to find her own unique and powerful voice.

Thank you, Netgalley and Jolly Fish Press for providing an e-arc in exchange for an honest review.

Daisy is a normal girl living her life with her family and her brother with down syndrome. Though, financially they were struggling and still were able to survive their life because of the business of their parents which is the Poop Fairy.

Daisy has the condition of a lisp which became the reason for bullying. Because of this condition also, she was shy speaking in front of other people. But as their teacher announced that their project will be the way to change the world, this results in her panic thinking, since they need to report the results in front of the class. This project will challenge her confidence, her beliefs, and her determination to overcome her fears and be able to help her brother.

Again, I want to thank Netgalley for accepting my request to read this book in advance. I was fascinated by the story of this book. I can’t help to be amazed because the story or the concept was based on Ms. Melissa Hart, plus she has also a brother with down syndrome.

The story tells us that even if we have these differences, this will not be a hindrance to being happy and doing what we want, with disability or not.

Overall, I will recommend this book to those readers who want to read a good middle-grade book. 😊
