Jean is a teenager with cerebral palsy who believes she is normal and fits in. She goes to ‘Crip Camp’ and meets other people with cerebral palsy, mental retardation, paraplegics, and other disabilities and comes to find more about her true self. The author doesn’t hold back but gives you the details without sugar coating. It’s interesting for me to come to understand another world I’ve never experienced.
