Karen: A True Story Told by Her Mother

'“A warm and winning and spirited account of a young mother’s attempt to overcome the liabilities of cerebral palsy, and to refute the first medical verdict that her little girl would have ‘an existence but no life’ . . . A gallant account, in very human terms.” —Kirkus Reviews “A wonderful story of human courage, patience, and triumph. But you’ll want to read it most for Karen’s own words: ‘I can walk, I can talk. I can read. I can write. I can do anything.’” —The New York Times “Extraordinary is the word to be used first, last, and repeatedly about this book. . . . Anyone who meets Karen, even on paper, will postpone resigning from the human race.” —Saturday Review  '
