Notes

Description
"A moving memoir from the mother of a child with Treacher Collins Syndrome, with a foreword by R.J. Palacio, author of Wonder"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
Normal. Who is to say what this word means? For Magda Newman, it was a goal. She wanted her son Nathaniel to be able to play on the playground, swim at the beach, enjoy the moments his friends took for granted. But Nathaniel's severe Treacher Collins syndrome-- a craniofacial condition-- meant that other concerns came first. But Nathaniel looks at 'normal' from a completely different perspective. Here, mother and son tell the story of their family-- from Nathaniel facing sixty-seven surgeries before the age of fifteen, to making friends, moving across the country, and persevering through hardships. -- adapted from jacket
