📒You Ll Grow Out Of It ✍ Jessi Klein
📝You ll Grow Out of It Book Synopsis : THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER 'Jessi Klein is a brilliant comedic mind and this book is a perfect reflection of that. It's like having a glass of wine with the best friend you wish you had' - Amy Schumer 'Miranda July meets Tina Fey' The Pool As both a tomboy and a late bloomer, comedian Jessi Klein grew up feeling more like an outsider than a participant in the rites of modern femininity. In YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT, Klein offers-through an incisive collection of real-life stories-a relentlessly funny yet poignant take on a variety of topics she has experienced along her strange journey to womanhood and beyond. These include her "transformation from Pippi Longstocking-esque tomboy to are-you-a-lesbian-or-what tom man," attempting to find watchable porn, and identifying the difference between being called 'ma'am' and 'miss' ('Miss sounds like you weigh ninety-nine pounds'). Raw, relatable, and consistently hilarious, YOU'LL GROW OUT OF IT is a one-of-a-kind book by a singular and irresistible comic voice.

📒She Will Not Grow Out Of It ✍ David B. Hack
📝She Will NOT Grow Out of It Book Synopsis : [INDENT] Charismatic girl, handicapped from birth, jumps from a handicap-elementary to a normal high school, proves her detractors spectacularly wrong, and becomes a thriving professional helper, not helpee. Young and single professional woman meets, grows, travels and laughs through many adventures while pursuing patriotic employment in her nation's capital. [INDENT] Pam Silverwood, B.S., M.A. and SLP/CCC (Speech-Language Pathologist, Certificate of Clinical Competence) was born with the worst kind of Spina Bifida, and she was written off by her doctors, who said she would never walk or talk and she'd be mentally retarded. Her parents were advised to institutionalize her at birth, but her father said, "No, she's part of our family; she's coming home with us." [INDENT] She walked, she talked, and against all expectation eventually became Supervisor of Speech-Language Pathology at WALTER REED ARMY MEDICAL CENTER, where she met, diagnosed, and treated First Lady Mamie Eisenhower, U.S. Senator Karl E. Mundt, U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, and grievously injured U.S. Army officers and soldiers, including 4-Star General Lewis B. Hershey. [INDENT] FIRST PAGE: "Good morning, Pam. The Commanding General wants to see you right away!""Oh, that's funny; you guys are really good!""Yes, we know. And you really are wanted in the General's office -- STAT! Here's the message; you're excused from the staff What could I have done? I thought minutes later, as I run-skittered through the polished hallways. I can't have killed anyone! Speech therapy is not a lethal discipline! This was my fourth year at Walter Reed Army Hospital; I had never been in the Commanding General's office for any reason. Called on the carpet now, without a clue, I was terrified. My feet were still racing my heart as I turned into the outer office... .... [INDENT] LAST CHAPTER (EPILOGUE): [INDENT] In all, I learned from my own life -- and those of my patients and students -- that great things may happen, if you hope and try; that pediatricians and surgeons -- even speech-language pathologists -- sometimes don't know, and when they don't know, they may sometimes just make something up, or tell you something that their professor made up long ago. First, they may tell you something so pessimistic that it demolishes all your hope ("she'll never walk or talk") when hope is everything to you. Or, second, they may tell you something so optimistic ("he'll grow out of it") that it lulls you into complacency -- into waiting till the child is older, when a completely successful intervention may be impossible. Between these opposites, medical or paramedical professionals may sometimes advise intervention that is ill-advised. As a parent, educator, counselor, minister/priest/rabbi/imam, advocate, social worker or attorney, it is your job both to hope and to do -- never letting either down for the sake of the other; it is your job to get second opinions -- and sometimes, with or against "good" advice, you may still prayerfully have to say the equivalent of "No, she's part of our family; she's coming home with us!" Your daughter (or son, or patient, or student, or client or parishioner, or plaintiff or defendant) is depending on you for that. I wish you all the help of Heaven and earth with these all-important decisions. [INDENT] END OF SAMPLE TEXT. [INDENT] READER: For every outcast and everyone in danger of feeling oneself an outcast. Whoever you are--whatever your handicap or other condition of birth or experience--there's hope here for you. For every parent of a physically imperfect child, yes, but also for anyone and everyone handicapped by perceived inferiority of whatever nature. Whatever your reason for feeling incomplete, this memoirist knows your struggle, understands you, and prays for your self-acceptance and success.

📒Church Boy ✍ Kirk Franklin
📝Church Boy Book Synopsis : When he fell from a darkened stage in November 1996, Kirk Franklin could easily have been killed. That ten-foot plunge might have ended the career of one of America's most exciting young prodigies. But thanks to his dramatic recovery, the fall added not only a new dimension to his story but it brought Kirk Franklin to the attention of millions who otherwise might never have heard the name. Today Kirk Franklin is bigger than ever. His recordings have topped the charts, selling more copies in less time than any gospel musician in history. He has won every award gospel music has to offer but his own success is the last thing on his mind. This is the story of a young man from the poor side of town. He was taunted and teased as a child, but his faith and his remarkable musical talent helped him overcome the odds. In these pages Kirk Franklin reveals the real source of his strength. "What motivates me," he says, "is the knowledge that God has redeemed me from the pain and the hurts and the sin of my past and given me a new joy I can't even explain. It's not just for show," he says. "It's the truth, and that's what I want to express."
📒Before The Monkeys Came ✍ W.P. Strange
📝Before the Monkeys Came Book Synopsis : "Before the Monkeys Came" is a 2001 winner in the Writers Digest Self-published Book Awards, Literary/Mainstream category. Frank watches as his friends are drafted to fight a war no one believes in, or he helps them escape to Canada when their student deferments expire to avoid serving in the rock and roll war. Never having to chose, being forever 4-F (unfit for military service) has robbed him of the chance to make his own political statement. Frank was born with hemophilia, a hereditary disease passed from mother to son. His blood doesnt clot normally, so even a minor bump to a knee or elbow joint often becomes a serious bleed, ultimately causing crippling, muscle atrophy and extreme episodes of intense pain. As a child frequent hospital stays were the norm, and missed school routine. The needles, transfusions and traction are the only therapies being preformed in the fifties and early sixties when the average life expectancy of a boy with hemophilia was fifteen. With the first significant advances in cryo-precipitate (clotting factor removed from whole blood, spun in a centrifuge and frozen for later IV injection.) the first real help arrives by the mid-sixties. Later came Factor VIII, manufactured from whole blood from blood banks like the Red Cross, and the technology for quick intravenous treatment that worked significantly better than anything that came before, promises a more normal life for those born later than Frank and the other men already significantly impaired. But Franks crippling is stabilized by Factor VIII and he finally sees hope. The comes 1976, the bicentennial year and the year of AIDS. Drug companies poor quality control and the FDAs lack of oversight allows millions of contaminated blood to be processed into Factor VIII and other blood products and distributed to the hemophilia community without regard to the possible infections it could cause. Not warned until 1985, eighty to ninety percent of hemophiliacs who infused Factor VIII during those years becomes HIV positive. A third of them would die of full blown AIDS within a year, hundreds of spouses will be infected, and their children before the spread is controlled. Franks story is only one of thousands of people caught in this terrible web. The treatment that once held such hope and promise for a healthier life, becomes worse than the disease it tried to help. Frank faces heartbreak, loss, new injuries and further crippling as he tries to face down his demons and find a way just to
