    a work of genius

    If we define genius as work that changes the way we think then Blue Peninsula is that rare work.

    In this slim volume we learn how to think about what something might truly mean literally, metaphorically, and medically.

    Any person who teaches writing will soon be stealing ideas and creating lesson plans from it. Any person who is a reader will read with deeper under understanding.

    Perhaps, most importantly, any mother with a child with disabilities will not feel quite so isolated. Speaking as a member of a clan where some of our families have children with disabilities as well as typically developing children, I am grateful to McKeithen for increasing my awareness and understanding of the impact disease has on everyone. On my third copy.

    Innovative and inspiring

    By combining her story with great poetry, McKeithen has created art that defies category.

    Poignant in its honesty

    Ms. McKeithen has offered us a must-read. For all of us who have suffered and lost she shares her ways of living in the face of the unknown ... in a world of no solutions. There is comfort in her words, just by understanding her pain we can begin to move beyond ours.
