Best Disability book so far!9/27/2002
I've read alot of books growing up but when I picked up "Stolen Shadows" by Mary King, I was unable to set it down. The book will always keep the reader on the edge of their seat wondering whats going to happen next. As a disabled person with Muscular Dystrophy (SMA Type III), The life, feelings, sex issues, and daily things a disabled person encounters is VERY well portrayed. The medical details and procedures that are explained gives the reader a geat visual of whats going on. While reading the book it is like you're right there as Mary King describes every detail and leaves a vivid picture in your mind! I would highly recommend picking up this book, both for the "able bodied" reader to better educate as well as the disabled reader to give hope and let all of us disabed people to know yes there are alternatives and yes you CAN do it!
