Check Out the New Superhero Comic Book Twitcha
There's a new superhero entering the comic book world and she's a teenage girl with Tourette Syndrome. Twitcha is the brainchild of NJCTS Youth Advocate Sarah Baldwin who illustrated and wrote the book with the help of her fellow NJCTS Tim Howard Leadership Academy participants LI TA Mary Gregorian of Smithtown, NY and Julie Nemerson of Northbrook, IL. Together the teens dreamed up a superhero that would be living with Tourette Syndrome and facing the same struggles that they were, both emotionally and physically.
