Narrator Candace Thaxton lends her unique voice to a feisty and unforgettable protagonist. Born with cerebral palsy, Ellie Cowan has always used a wheelchair, but that hasn’t stopped her from dreaming big. She wants to become a professional baker. But when her grandfather’s dementia worsens, Ellie and her mom must move to look after him. Narrating in an emotional tone, Thaxton skillfully captures Ellie’s wry sense of humor, along with her charming idiosyncratic friends, Coralee and Bert. Listeners will hear Ellie’s loneliness and determination as she struggles to find independence and her place in the world. Written from the author’s own experience as a special needs parent, this heartwarming story is brought to life as Thaxton strikes the perfect balance of grit and tenderness.
