“Braced” Book Review Rachel is pretty sure that this school year will be the best one yet. She’s finally gotten to play as a forward on her soccer team. Her best friends, Hazel and Frannie, are really funny and they do everything together. Then during the middle of a soccer game, Rachel is called away on appointment. Her doctor says that her scoliosis has gotten worse and that she’ll need to wear a brace twenty-three hours a day. What’s a girl to do? Now the brace has changed everything Rachel does. She can’t kick a ball like she used to, she can’t twist around like she used to, and she can’t bend over like she used to. Her brace changes the way everyone sees and treats her.
