When I first saw this title I thought ‘sprayon skin’ sounded gross. But then I read the book and WOW! Fiona Wood changed people’s lives.
Fiona was brave, she didn’t care that she was different when she was a kid and she had big dreams for her life. I’m like that. And she did everything with a big heart and she spoke up every time she saw something needed to be said and that is really hard to do.
She had all these problems to face throughout her life when she was trying to become a doctor. But she never let that stop her. She ended up making huge differences in people’s lives – mostly people who had been burnt badly – and she even won awards for it.
I would recommend this book for kids who like to be inspired by real life people.
