Staff Reviews


People with disabilities, parents, teachers, and those curious about how a child’s mind works will find a fascinating story in this memoir of Dena and Becky Taylor’s struggles and triumphs navigating Becky’s childhood and adulthood with cerebral palsy. Told in their two distinct perspectives, this intimate story recounts how their lives have been impacted but not defined by Becky’s disability. Becky was one of the first children to be mainstreamed into public school by the 1975 Santa Cruz County law, and the Taylors’ pivotal action hugely contributed to California’s education and transportation for disabled children.

“This book should be required reading for teachers and everyone in equity and critical disability studies.” –Gloria Filax, Professor of Disability Studies, Athabasca University
