[Editor’s Note: The following is a combined review with HOPE THROUGH HEARTSONGS.]--The author, not yet a teenager, is a poet whose inspirational words arise from his longstanding struggle with a rare form of muscular dystrophy. Hearing him read his poems and connecting with his view of the world will be quite an experience for many listeners. You hear, not a struggling child, but a young adult, seasoned by having to contemplate an existence founded on pain, dysfunction, and a limited future. He reads naturally, and the two audios will make many parents take another look at the way children experience the world and what kinds of childhood problems are really worth worrying about.
