Cinnamon is a little girl with vitiligo. The vitiligo causes spots, and the spots make people stare. In Cinnamon’s imagination, those inquisitive people become a monster, skilled at spotting vitiligo spots; the vitiligo Spot Spotter. Can she run from the Spotter, or hide away? Can she scrub her spots off, or cover them up? She tries it all, but the Spotter remains in hot pursuit. Perhaps the answer is to become a Spotter of sorts too.

If like me you have vitiligo, you probably know this feeling: wherever you go, it’s all eyes on you. This fully-illustrated children’s book helps children see all that spotting in a different light.
