I loved this book! It was so touching and it made me cry. And to know that it was a true story really touched my heart and inspired me. I hope this family is great. David is truly a great role model and he is really working hard. Sometimes in the book i thought dies he still has his own thoughts or something. the part that really wanted to make me cry was when he started to speak and his family was over joyed.
