I love what Lewis has done with his life, it's so inspiring to hear. Giving him his Radio 1 Teen Hero award on stage at Wembley made me very proud, and hearing how loud the crowd screamed just showed what people thought of the amazing work he's doing. I saw first-hand the incredible things he is creating with Friend Finder when we worked on the prom together. Lewis is changing people's lives and he's a true teen hero. Author: Nick Grimshaw
To be comfortable in your skin was the biggest topic for me because I'm somebody who's always judged just by how I look. Lewis is showing the world it's OK to be different and that disabilities and personalities make the world colourful. Lewis said I'm his hero, well, he's mine. He is so young and going through so much just to stay alive and yet he gives his everything to help others and make a positive impact in the world. Keep fighting Lew. Author: Kid Ink
To me, in this day and age when we have so much bad news, it's so wonderful to see someone so young doing something so brave and so wonderful. It teaches us all a lesson. It's just really inspirational. Author: Elton John
Lewis continues to do incredible things in his life and constantly proves that one person can make all the difference in other people's lives, and for that I (and everyone else) am forever grateful. Author: KSI
Lewis is a true inspiration for us all to remember to never give up on our hopes and dreams - stay positive and keep fighting! I feel very honoured to support Lewis with this book that also raises awareness of epilepsy. Author: Jennie Jacques (Queen Judith in Vikings)

It is an inspiration and an eye-opener. I didn't realise that epileptic seizures can just cut out whole slices of memory. I didn't know (although I should have done) the weakening and debilitating effects it has on the body. I didn't know, because all that Lewis has done in his 17 years, from fundraising at 3 yrs old (his idea, not his mum's--wonderful though she is), being horrifically bullied at secondary school, then founding a FriendFinderOfficial website for disabled teenagers and organising a wonderful Prom for them, all sound to be the actions of a healthy dynamic generous-spirited young man.
He is all of these things--except he has life-limiting health problems. As he says "My illness may define the length of my life, but it won't define how I live it. My disability gave me the ability to understand and help others." He life, and this book, show how he lives by these words. He, his mum and his sisters are kind. A rare thing these days.
This book is unputdownable, I carried on reading it while cooking! It is a must read. It should be read by all teachers and students. It should be read by all of us.
Lewis is an amazing, inspirational, young man dedicated to helping others--and has a great sense of humour. Meet him if you can--it will enrich your life.
Don't buy one book--buy two and give one to someone else. It will make their day and it helps us all see the beauty in the stars. A great antidote to the dark world we live in.
This book shares his life experiences and tells how with the support of his friends and loving family he has achieved so much.
It is a heart warming and humbling experience reading this book and I thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
Lewis and his family show just what is possible for people with disability to achieve .
It also is refreshing to understand how someone who faces such personal difficulties can be so compassionate for others who also have similar difficulties .well done Lewis keep going
