“There is a lack of books that truly demonstrate what it is like to have a disability, really we are just the same as everyone else!!! A small book with a huge message that should be read by all! This book is changing the boundaries in the best way possible.”
– Chloe Tear, Life as a Cerebral Palsy Student (BLOG)
