This is a great book written by the mother of a young man with ACC. She does a great job describing what it was like to raise her son and how far he has come along since he was diagnosed as an infant. The son, Alex, also writes sections where he recounts incidences from his past as a result of his ACC and the effects they had on him. A must read for any parent of a child with ACC.
