Ghost Boy

Ghost Boy

by Martin Pistorius

I heard about this book on NPR and knew I had to read it. It is an autobiography of a man who had a meningitis-like infection that put him in a vegetative state at the age of twelve. His parents cared for him for 14 years, thinking he was unaware, but he was completely awake the entire time. The book chronicles his awakening and struggle back to communication. It is an amazing book about an amazing victory over adversity. -- Added by Bruce-Baldwin on 02/28/2015
