The first move

Ireland, Jenny2023
Books
Juliet believes girls like her -- girls with arthritis -- don't get their own love stories. She exists at the edges of her friends' social lives, preferring to play online chess. There, she isn't just 'the girl with crutches'. Ronan is good looking, smart, a bad boy plagued by guilt over what happened to his brother. Chess Life is his escape. At school, Juliet thinks Ronan thinks someone like Ronan could never be interested in someone like her -- and she wouldn't want him to be anyway. His attitude stinks. But little do they know they have more in common than they think, and everybody deserves a love story...
