Monthly Book Recommendation: The Boy in the Moon

Monthly book recommendation:

The Boy in the Moon

Written by Ian Brown

There is something really special about a book that can take a person into the world of another. In his book, author and father Ian Brown, does just that. This book is about Walker, Ian’s son, who was born with a syndrome known as cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome, a rare genetic mutation that affects about 100 people worldwide. It is also a book about the journey of these parents as they care for Walker.

This book is both beautiful and incredibly raw and honest at the same time.  Trying to understand the different realities of different people/parents and what they go through is why it is so important to read this book; the hours of screaming, the perpetual sleepless nights, the financial burden, trips and stays in the hospital, the beauty, the moments, the lessons, the guilt, searching, anger, and mostly the honesty and love…there is so much to this book.
