Aaron Philips and his family are from Antigua in the Caribbean When his parents found out that he had cerebral palsy they had tough choices to make These choices led his mother to bring him to New York in order to receive better care and soon his mother and father switched places with his father becoming his main caregiver In his memoir Aaron outlines how hard it has been for him and his family physically emotionally socially and financially In addition to this though He highlights all the help that he has received in his young life from those who he now dubs his “Angels” Through these angels not only has he had his necessities cared for but he has also made connections with many professionals and creative types that have given him many opportunities to advocate for people with disabilities and to express himself creativelyThis book really feels like it was written by a 14 year old which is a good thing that hopefully means his co writer didn’t overshadow his thoughts However the freuent use of acronyms and Japanese words makes it hard for the casual reader to continue on without saying “what did that mean again” and then have to go back and find the term and re read In addition since his slogan for the book is “It’s About Ability Not Disability” I would have really liked to see in pictures and words a little detail about what he has achievedAll that being said though it is a fine autobiography that feels genuine and real I think that it is a really accessible story that will help students with disabilities feel empowered and those without disabilities to be empathetic I recommend this book for children grades 5 8

I was very excited to see this book come into my library and through reading it I gained some insight into what it's like having cerebral palsy what it's like to navigate the world with a wheelchair and what it must be like to parent a child with different needsWhen reading the book I did wonder how much Aaron wrote and how much his co author wrote trying to write in his voice I thought it was written by an adult trying to inhabit a younger voice which felt odd to me At times it felt like reading acknowledgements listing the first and last names of the people who helped in various situations To me as an adult it took away from the narrative of the book and I feel it would make an average kid have an even harder time staying focused on the story Aaron's life is full of dramatic challenges and has a very hopeful positive message it would be an amazing novel or movie
