Good different / Meg Eden Kuyatt.

Kuyatt, Meg Eden, (author.).

Selah knows her rules for being normal. And she always, always sticks to them. This means keeping her feelings locked tightly inside, despite the way they build up inside her as each school day goes on, so that she has to tear off her normal-person mask the second she gets home from school and listen to her favorite pop song on repeat, trying to recharge. Selah feels like a dragon stuck in a world of humans, but she knows how to hide it. Until the day she explodes and hits a fellow student. After the incident, Selah's friends pull away from her, her school threatens expulsion, and her comfortable, familiar world starts to crumble. But as Selah begins to figure out more about who she is, she comes to understand that different doesn't mean damaged. Maybe different can even be good. Can she get her school to understand that, before it's too late?
