“I find [this] story raw, real and very inspirational. It’s relevant for both adults and young children—for us to realize our amazing potential and the miracles we are capable of achieving. It’s easy to focus on all of our flaws but what this story reminds us of is our true essence; when we can tap into it, it’s unbelievably powerful. And that essence is within us—we just have to allow it to manifest.” —Prea Gulati, PhD Assistant Research Professor, Department of Global Health, George Washington University
“It made me feel interested, surprised, and empowered, and I recommend all kids and adults to read it. I felt like I could do the same for my parents if I am in a situation like this.” —Gabe, age 9
