Maya is a 9 year old girl who suffers from eczema. She is itchy all the time and can't enjoy all the fun games or delicious foods that her friends do. She faces teasing, isolation and A LOT OF questions. But along with her family, she slowly learns how to manage her condition and chooses to be happy in spite of it. This is a story about Maya's challenges, her courage and her family’s unshakeable love and determination to support her. Advance Reviews: This is a gentle and compassionate story about coping with a skin problem that is terribly misunderstood. Every child-friendly school library should stock this sensitively written and colourfully illustrated book. Mrs. Meera Issacs, Principal, The Cathedral & John Connon School Anindita has written a compelling account of a little eczema sufferer that tugs at your heartstrings. It is a must-read for everyone who is suffering from eczema or caring for someone with eczema. Starting with discomfort, rejection, isolation and desolation to acceptance and eventual triumph, this roller coaster of feelings gives a human face to a medical condition. Dr. Manish K. Shah, Vice-President, ISPD, Associate Hon Dermatologist, B. J. Wadia Hospital for Children & Consultant Dermatologist & Pediatric Dermatologist, Bhatia Hospital What a positive book!! So much information wrapped up in a story form. There were two aspects which really appealed to me. The first being what I truly believe in; that families are responsible for establishing self worth in children. The second, separating the problem from the person! I hope this book makes many more Mayas with eczema grow into happy, self assured adults. Dr. Pervin Dadachanji, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist.

Must read for Children!

The book is a simplified and true account of a brave girl's battle with Eczema. You become a part of the little girls journey to win this battle against many odds.

Children will love the books because they find it easy to relate to and can understand Maya's perspective. My 8 year old nephew hadn't come across something as serious as eczema but was able to draw comparisons to similar instances that he is faced with.

I found it useful because the author's has done a wonderful job in explaini...
