    [synopsis] => A extraordinary novel-in-verse for fans of Starfish and A Kind of Spark about a neurodivergent girl who comes to understand and celebrate her difference.
	Selah knows her rules for being normal.
	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 run to the bathroom and hide in the stall until she can calm down. 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.
	Selah's friends pull away from her, her school threatens expulsion, and her comfortable, familiar world starts to crumble.
	But as Selah starts to figure out more about who she is, she comes to understand that different doesn't mean damaged. Can she get her school to understand that, too, before it's too late?
	This is a moving and unputdownable story about learning to celebrate the things that make us different. Good Different is the perfect next read for fans of Counting by 7s or Jasmine Warga. 
	"Relatable, profound and beautifully heartfelt. I loved it." --Elle McNicoll, author of the Schneider Family Book Award Honor-winning A Kind of Spark
	"A powerful addition to literature about the autism experience. Selah is funny, insightful, and poetic in her quest to balance fitting in and staying true to herself." --Laura Shovan, co-author of Sydney Taylor Notable novel A Place at the Table 
	"Meg Eden Kuyatt portrays the experience of being an autistic girl with authenticity and heart. Her beautiful verse paints a vivid picture of the challenges and the joys of being autistic. Selah is a hero that readers will root for and remember." --Sarah Kapit, author of Get a Grip, Vivy Cohen!
	"Throughout Good Different, Selah learns it's okay to stand up and it's okay to stand out. Meg Kuyatt's powerful debut finds Selah answering the age-old question: Why be normal when you can soar like a dragon?" --Eric Bell, author of Alan Cole Is not a Coward  
	Meg Eden Kuyatt is a neurodivergent author and college-level creative writing instructor. She is a 2020 Pitch Wars mentee, and the author of poetry books. When she isn't writing, she's probably playing Fire Emblem. If she could be a Pokémon, she'd be Charizard. Find her online at or on Instagram at @meden_author.
	I ran,
	locked myself
	in one of the changing stalls.
	Mom banged on the door
	but I balled up on the dirty
	tile floor
	and cried
	and hyperventilated
	till my head stopped spinning
	and my eyes dried
	enough for me to see.
	But when I calmed down,
	Mom said,
	"Selah Godfrey,
	never ever cry
	in the middle of a store.
	Always hold it in
	till you make it back to the car."
	That became
	the first rule
	for my list
	on how to be
	a Normal person.
