This was a book that I had to read for my Human Exceptionalities class. It's a small little book at about 90 pages about one woman's true account of having a child with a mental disability. Rather than using technical terminology to describe the child's condition, Buck details her day-to-day accounts and emotions of raising a child with a disability.

This is a truly heartfelt book, and although it was a school book, I would still recommend it. This gives an emotional account from a mother's point of view of the struggles she faces, as well as the heartbreak she feels for her child. A good, quick read (it could have been read in about an hour or so), but there is a lot of meaning hidden within the pages.
