Conditions of a heart / Bethany Mangle.

Mangle, Bethany, (author.).

After an incident leads to her suspension, eighteen-year-old Brynn's high school persona that hides her secret disability is shattered, and she begins embracing her true self on her journey to self-acceptance.
Brynn Kwan is desperate for her high school persona to be real. That Brynn is head of the yearbook committee, the favorite for prom queen, and definitely not crumbling from a secret disability that's rapidly wearing her down. If no one knows the truth about her condition, Brynn doesn't have to worry about the pitying looks or accusations of being a faker that already destroyed her childhood friendships. She's even willing to let go of her four-year relationship with her first love, Oliver, rather than reveal that a necessary surgery was the reason she ignored his existence for the entire summer. But after Brynn tries to break up a fight at a pep rally and winds up barred from all her clubs and senior prom, she has nothing left to prop up her illusion of being just like everyone else. During a week-long suspension from school, she realizes that she doesn't quite recognize the face in the mirror . . . and it's not because of her black eye from the fight. With a healthy sister who simply doesn't understand and a confused ex-boyfriend who won't just take a hint and go away like a normal human being , Brynn begins to wonder if it's possible to reinvent her world by being the person she thought no one herself.
