Abstract:

An honest, funny, heart-wrenching story of a family, and particularly a little girl faced with a monster that steals her voice but can't crush her spirit. When Schuyler was 18 months old, her pediatrician questioned her lack of speech. When she was diagnosed with Bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria (an extremely rare neurological disorder caused by a malformation of the brain), her parents had a name for the monster. Once they knew why she couldn't speak, they needed to determine how to help her learn. They didn't know that Schuyler was going to teach them a thing or two about fearlessness, tenacity, and joy. More than the memoir of a parent dealing with a child's disability, this is the story of the relationship between an ethereal little girl floating through the world without words, and her earthbound father who struggles with whether or not he is the right dad for the job.--From publisher description.
