This was a very enlightening story. Sad but uplifting. I read this a while ago. I personally know people who have suffered from this affliction and that is why I thought if I read it, I might become more informed. Recommend

Another YA favorite from my teen years. This is is about epilepsy. Why do I like such sad books?
