Leigh Brill grew up with Cerebral Palsy. This book is how with the help of a Lab named Slugger, Ms Brill was able to have a normal life. I love to read books about people meeting and overcoming problems in their lives and the animals that have helped them. Animals can do so much for us and they are really smarter than people believe. It is books like these that show this. Be prepared to laugh and cry along with Ms Brill and her friend Slugger while reading this book.
