Winner Blurb: 

Ariel and her identical sister were born with a rare condition called Crouzon Syndrome, a disorder preventing the typical growth of the skull, affecting the shape of the face and head. Throughout this memoir, Ariel writes about what it was like to grow up looking different in a society where beauty is valued, and the pressure she feels trying to be a normal kid, dealing with the trauma of numerous operations, bullying and a lack of self worth. Through her strength and emotional fortitude, Ariel has proven that “Beauty is subjective…Pain is Universal.”
