Fascinating glimpse into the heart and mind of a boy almost completely helpless in terms of physical ability but soaring ability of mind and soul. I found Christopher's writing somewhat difficult at times - it is an unusual style - but beautifully descriptive. I really enjoyed this book.
An amazing and inspiring story:
Christopher Nolan was deprived of oxygen at birth, leaving him a quadraplegic and unable to communicate. For years, this was his condition. Little did his family and others know that he was well aware of his surroundings, and inside him were thoughts and feelings just waiting to be expressed. When he finally discovered a way to communicate, he began to write, and amaze his family, teachers and friends. He went on to college, and still continues to amaze folk like me, with his perceptiveness and depth of thought. I highly recomomend this book.
