Narrator Maxwell Glick deftly captures the wide emotional range of Clare's astonishing life story. He was born with cerebral palsy and later realized he also had gender issues, which added to his personal unhappiness and to being harassed by others, including his own family. The book's first-person, conversational point of view takes listeners on Clare's painful but ultimately triumphant journey. Glick's changes in tone and pace are perfect as Clare gains confidence and becomes a "supercrip"--a handicapped person who can run, climb mountains, and much more. Because Clare covers many subjects that relate to prejudice--such as sexual abuse, objectivism, poverty, and blurred gender lines--the audio format is ideal to keep listeners focused on this intricate and compelling story, which was revised in 2009. Glick's portrayal of Clare will inspire others with similar challenges to persevere and prevail. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
