When a book can put me into the mind of someone that I have never been able to fully "get" before, I am always amazed. I always hate when people tell what the books is about in their review, but just in case, it's a book written from a girl's perspective who is living with cerebral palsy and can't speak and has a difficult time with even the simplest tasks. However, she is extremely intelligent with a photographic memory.
I loved this book and think that it should be required reading in school, even elementary school. I don't know what it would be like but the author definitely gave me a glimpse of the frustration in not being to express yourself and also the joy of the simplest accomplishment.
