Chloe Brown, the main character in Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert, has chronic pain and an invisible illness.
From the publisher:
Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan and a list. After almost – but not quite – dying, she’s come up with a list of directives to help her ‘Get a Life’:
- Enjoy a drunken night out
- Ride a motorbike
- Go camping
- Have meaningless but thoroughly enjoyable sex
- Travel the world with nothing but hand luggage
- And . . . do something bad
But it’s not easy being bad, even when you’ve written out step-by-step guidelines.
