Review

It's written by a young person, in a young person's language, however it will still hold appeal across the board to people who have been affected by brain injury, and should be a must read for all professionals involved in the care and support of children and young people. -- Encephalitis Society Newsletter This is a remarkable and unique narrative by a woman who has suffered a brain injury when she was 14 years old, and covers an 8-year post-concussion time span. She has lost all childhood memories, and her new learning is limited and inconsistent...The stigma and lack of understanding associated with having a hidden disability is conveyed evocatively. Nevertheless, the book is not intended to elicit sympathy but to allow her expression of both the frustration and the ironies of coping with a brain injury...Clinicians who work with clients who have brain injuries will feel humbled and can but learn from this book...It is rare for anyone with or without a brain injury to accomplish such an excellent book. -- Journal of Mental Health Imagine it, if you can. Well, you probably wouldn't get close to imagining how dreadful it could be to find your brain has suddenly messed up big style after a head injury. This revealing story tells what happened to one not so ordinary adolescent in November 1992... This is her story. The account of a reconstructed identity. Read it and experience the regrowth of an adolescent spirit. -- from the Foreword by Dr Robert McCabe, Consultant Adolescent Psychiatrist, Gartnavel Royal Hospital
