Item description for Learning To Be Me by Dr. Karen Pirnot...
Peter Michael Henderson is a bench warmer in the Midget Baseball League who has visions of homeruns and accolades for his multivarate and fantasized sports prowess. Instead, in a single moment in time, Peter's life is drastically altered by injury; and he must learn a new way of interacting with his world. Peter is well fortified toward his recovery goal in the tiny frame of Alicia Henderson, Peter's diminutive sister who assues a "no holds barred" approach to Peter's recovery and reentrance into a world significantly altered by physical incapacitation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Learning To Be Me?
Excellent story of overcoming disabilities. Mar 17, 2008
Dr Pirnot provides a realistic view into the life of not only a child who was suddenly and tragically injured, but also his family and friends. She captures the reader's mind and heart and leaves him or her constantly wondering what will happen next. She also provides a story that is so heart felt that it will make you smile in one chapter and cry in another. This book is a must read for parents, children, siblings, or others who work with those struggling (or not) to overcome disabilities.
The courage of Helen Keller Mar 7, 2008
This novel based on the medical condition of a young therapy patient treated by Dr. Pirnot 20 years ago is both inspiring and instructive . The human spirit is equally strong in children and adults. Healing becomes available through unexpected sources.
