A celebration of style with AND WITHOUT hair!

Shreya is a champion on the soccer field, the coolest scientist at her school, and dances like a star. She also has alopecia and can only style her hair in one way so none of the patches on her head would show – the patches with no hair at all. One day she receives a gift from her friends that inspires her to confidently embrace a new (hair) style!

This picture book about alopecia, self-love, and empathy will inspire young readers to accept the unique qualities that make up who they, and their peers, are.
