What did you like about the book? At the age of 27, Lauren Marks collapsed in an Edinburgh pub due to a brain aneurysm, which caused aphasia. And thus began her long journey to recovery, relearning language, writing, reading – and memories. She kept a diary of her progress which assisted her in writing this personal memoir. Read by Tavia Gilbert, the listener is right there with Lauren. The story reads like fiction and is all the more effective knowing it is not.

To whom would you recommend this book? Recommend to those who like true-life stories about overcoming physical difficulties and accidents.

Who should buy this book? High school and public libraries

Where would you shelve it? Non-fiction audiobooks, biography

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Very near.
