I am a Mom of a tween with a physical disability, was surfing the net and came across your site.

I want to bring your attention to a book my daughter and I recently read that would be in the YA (ages 8-12 probably) category called Bitter Tastes by V.B. Rosendahl.

It's a good, old-fashioned mystery with a girl protagonist (a la Nancy Drew) who also has a physical disability that makes it extra hard for her being the "new kid in town." It is an excellent book for young people (and adults) to read to better understand the world of physical challenges some people live in.

Please help spread the word about this wonderful book.
