"Born with legs that ended at her knees, author Eileen Cronin was one of 11 children in a boisterous family without quite enough parental attention to go around. Though her family didn't make her feel different, once she got to school she had to learn to stand up to bullies and deal with social alienation. Eventually, the stresses of being "disabled" made her turn to alcohol, and she spent years battling to recover from addiction."

This is a really well written and honest look at a girl growing up without legs. The book explores the struggle with getting her mom to admit that she took a drug while she was in the womb that caused her legs to shrink up. She was born before prosthetics were what they are today and it made for some funny and interesting stories. Very brave, strong lady!!
