it was amazing
Read in December, 2015

I won this book through Goodreads First Reads. This book is a worthwhile read, not just because the reader shares Allison's difficulties after her delicate surgery, but for anyone who has association with or works with anyone who has processing difficulties. This book speaks volumes regarding the need of support for anyone who has been diagnosed with such difficulties. This book also speaks to the real power of the human spirit in overcoming traumatic personal events. It is especially enlightening to read about the power of music in recovery situations.
