The Patch

Justina Chen Headley

"Ballerinas don't wear glasses," Becca cried. "and they especially do NOT wear patches!"

When Becca discovers she has Amblyopia (also called lazy eye) and has to wear an eye patch, she leads her classmates on imaginative adventures to explain her fabulous fashion choice.
