Review:

Denise Gossage's tale about her son with a disability is often told, but no telling ever grows old: the narrative of a determined mother, a supportive father, a challenged son, and a challenging and sometimes bewildering world of professionals, replete with jargon, some assistance, and some insufficiencies. What counts is the last scene in the last act, the outcome; all the rest is prelude to that final scene. In Denise's tale, the final scene is as uplifting as the preceding narrative has been distressing. --Ann Turnbull Distinguished Professor of Special Education University of Kansas
