Icy Sparks

€ 18.95

Icy Sparks is the sad, funny and transcendent tale of a young girl growing up in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky during the 1950?s. Gwyn Hyman Rubio?s beautifully written first novel revolves around Icy Sparks, an unforgettable heroine in the tradition of Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird or Will Treed in Cold Sassy Tree. At the age of ten, Icy, a bright, curious child orphaned as a baby but raised by adoring grandparents, begins to have strange experiences. Try as she might, her secrets?verbal croaks, groans, and physical spasms?keep afflicting her.

As an adult, she will find out she has Tourette?s Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder, but for years her behavior is the source of mystery, confusion, and deep humiliation. Narrated by a grown up Icy, the book chronicles a difficult, but ultimately hilarious and heartwarming journey, from her first spasms to her self-acceptance as a young woman. Curious about life beyond the hills, talented, and energetic, Icy learns to cut through all barriers?physical, mental, and spiritual?in order to find community and acceptance. Gwyn Hyman Rubio?s Icy Sparks is a fresh, original, and completely redeeming novel about learning to overcome others? ignorance and celebrate the differences that make each of us unique.
