Book Description

Matilda Marmalade was born with a rare and totally undiagnosed bone disease. It caused her to be very fragile. Her bones were like glass. When most babies would bump into things, he or she may only end up with an occasional injury. But in Matilda’s case, accidents always came with words like broken or fractured following, and it never involved a simple kiss on the head and a Band-Aid. On the contrary, it almost always involved a trip to the emergency room.

Matilda Marmalade was born with a rare and totally undiagnosed bone disease. It caused her to be very fragile. Her bones were like glass. When most babies would bump into things, he or she may only end up with an occasional injury. But in Matilda’s case, accidents always came with words like broken or fractured following, and it never involved a simple kiss on the head and a Band-Aid. On the contrary, it almost always involved a trip to the emergency room.

 

Being their first born, Matilda’s parents never considered her to have any problems other than being tiny and clumsy. She was always happy, full of smiles and giggles. She was just fragile. But her spirit shined through, and it was huge.

Niomi was Matilda’s younger sister. They were as different as night and day. Niomi was a big baby with big, strong bones. The kind of baby that the old ladies loved to fuss over. Matilda didn’t mind. She was getting too old for all that baby stuff. Plus, she liked having a little, BIG sister, and Niomi really liked having Matilda as her big, LITTLE sister.
