From the Publisher
Jonathan Bryan is 12 years old. He has severe cerebal palsy and finding a way to communicate was a long journey for him. The book begins from the perspective of Jonathan's mother, Chantal, who outlines Jonathan's early life and how he learned to write with his eyes. When Jonathan takes over the narrative, the reader is given a glimpse into the mind of a talented boy who has been locked in but now breaks free with beautiful words. The combination of poignant poetry and anecdotal stories about the Bryan family presents the reader with a truly thought-provoking read. A proportion of the proceeds of sale of this book will be donated to the Teach us Too Trust.
A breathtaking book from an extraordinary boy

I had heard of Jonathan’s work ahead of the book release (check out CBeebies ‘My Life episode on BBC/YouTube) and was keen to understand more. This book does great credit to him and his team. It is superbly written and gives an amazing insight into a world for which we are given such a first-rate guide in the author to explore.
The narrative has a clear message never to give up hope but is written in a very engaging, honest and approachable manner. Reading as a parent, his mother’s description of the earlier days was emotionally tough but thankfully you know there is hope. Needless to say what follows in Jonathan’s words have been chosen carefully! (Given his CP, he spells out words with eye movements).
Perhaps the most powerful aspect of this story is that of the journey of faith, both that of Jonathan and his family. Worthy of consideration even if you’re not particularly spiritual.
So stop reading reviews and read it yourself! I thoroughly recommend this small investment of your time to read something hugely inspiring. Thank you Jonathan!
Jonathan introduces the reader to his life, full of love and spirituality. Jonathan is using his voice to campaign for others to gain theirs...his goal for every child however profound their disability to be taught to read and write.
your faith in humanity...
