    Originally reviewed for YA Books Central This Ability, Not Disability Fourteen year old Aaron Philip was born on the Caribbean island of Antigua, but the lack of resources for combating his cerebral palsy resulted in a move to New York City and his family spending years torn between two nations Written with loquacious simplicity, Aaron conveys a touching personal account of his numerous surgeries, therapies, and the extreme hardships endured by his family in the name of getting him the best treatments available It is the ongoing story of a vibrant boy, born to truly remarkable and determined parents It is also a call for heightened awareness and empathy by a passionate young advocate for others facing similar physical impairments This memoir is accented by a smattering of black and white family photos adding further weight and insight into the private lives of both this wheelchair bound young man and his devoted caretakers Particularly poignant was the account of all Aaron s parents have suffered and sacrificed This reader would have liked to see of them through his eyes Aaron s voice is often boisterous and spasmodic, with a probable appeal toward the younger range of the middle grade spectrum Some readers may find his fixation with anime ...

    Aaron Philips and his family are from Antigua in the Caribbean When his parents found out that he had cerebral palsy they had tough choices to make These choices led his mother to bring him to New York in order to receive better care, and soon his mother and father switched places, with his father becoming his main caregiver In his memoir Aaron outlines how hard it has been for him and his family physically, emotionally, socially, and financially In addition to this though, He highlights all the help that he has received in his young life from those who he now dubs his Angels Through these angels not only has he had his necessities cared for, but he has also made connections with many professionals and creative types that have given him many opportunities to advocate for people with disabilities and to express himself creatively.This book really feels like it was written by a 14 year old which is a good thing, that hopefully means his co writer didn t overshadow his thoughts However, the frequent use of acronyms and Japane...

    This is an easy to read book written with heart My only problem was the use of CP, OT, and PT without the defining words to go along with the acronyms I think that would be helpful for younger readers who are not familiar with those terms Otherwise, the book was put together well and has an important story to tell.Book Description At once beautiful and heartbreaking, Aaron Philip found a way to make me laugh even as I choked up, found a way to bring on my empathy without ever allowing me to feel sorry for him An eye opening debut Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award winner and Newbery Honor author of Brown Girl DreamingIn this heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting memoir, Aaron Philip, a fourteen year old boy with cerebral palsy, shows how he isn t defined so much by his disability as he is by his abilities.Written with award winning author Tonya Bolden, This Kid Can Fly chronicles Aaron s extraordinary journey fr...

    I was very excited to see this book come into my library and through reading it I gained some insight into what it s like having cerebral palsy, what it s like to navigate the world with a wheelchair and what it must be like to parent a child with different needs.When reading the book, I did wonder how much Aaron wrote and how much his co author wrote trying to write in his voice I thought it was written by an adult trying to inhabit a younger voice which felt odd to me At times it felt like reading acknowledgements, listing the first and last names of the people who hel...

    Very inspiring and disabilities awareness raising book Aaron Philip has serious mobility issues and portrays the real struggles he faces daily with honesty and humor His memoir accomplishes two things it destroys stereotypes one may have about people with physical disabilities, and it makes you much understanding of the needs of people with disabilities especially physical and makes you want to go do something really helpful like donate money, advocate for accessibility improvements everywhere, or donate time to help someone who is a caretaker to have a break every now and then I and my B...
