Aaron Philips' well-being and 'success' comes from the hard work, dedication and sacrifice of his father Petrone Philip; and the seemingly endless stream of "angels" who provide assistance in many ways over the 15 years chronicled. Many readers would have benefited from a Glossary of Abbreviations. Although the publisher claims the book is appropriate for ages 6-12, the language level may be challenging. I look forward to the sequel. Aaron emphasizes the importance of ramps and elevators in schools and transit facilities and vehicles in order to aid mobility.

This is Aaron Philip's memoir (assisted by ghostwriter Tonya Bolen) of his extraordinary journey from happy baby in Antigua to confident teen artist in New York City. His honest, often funny stories of triumph - despite physical difficulties, poverty, and other challenges - are inspiring as they are eye-opening. [flyleaf]
