Carly's Voice by Arthur Fleischmann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What appears at first glance to be a seemingly tragic story - a young girl cannot speak or function the way other adolescents her age can - turns into a beautiful story of a voice waiting to be heard. Autism had trapped a young Carly Fleischmann inside a world only she could understand for nearly a decade. But when she turned ten, she showed the world that, even though an oral motor impairment prevented her from speaking, she still had a voice inside just waiting to be heard.
A beautiful story of overcoming challenges from parenting a child with autism to seeing Carly struggle to live with the condition firsthand, this story shows that, even in a most dire situation, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
