Disabled kids make their dreams come true at a camp that was never designed for handicapped children - delightful, memorable book.

I really enjoyed this book. I was a quick read, was heartwarming and enlightening. Sad as well. Shows the human side to people with significant, fatal disabilities and their very human needs and desires to be treated as people. From the perspective of a young counselor who has no experience with disabled children and who is enlightened because of his experience. Some profanity, some referral to sexual feelings. A good read for an older teenager/young adult and an enjoyable read for any adult age.

Fanciful and entertaining, The Acorn People is not great literature, but it keeps the interest of the reader with plot surprises and engaging characters.
