Jenna Martin
Stacey Chillemi is 32 years old, a mother of three, a wife and writer. Her journey and reason for being is defined each day by the happiness in her children's eyes and the people with epilepsy she has helped through her writing. -- Jenna Martin, Senior Editor
Della Crews
"Life deals us many hard blows that we often don't expect. I admire the fact that someone like Stacey Chillemi was thrown a curve ball that may have knocked many of us down to the point where many of us may not have wanted to get back up, but she did. It wasn't easy but she possesses a determined spirit that won't let her give up. For that reason Stacey will go far and achieve whatever dreams she sets her mind to accomplish." -- Della Crews, Anchor/Talk Show Host, News 12, NJ

I found this book a very easy read, which is important in trying to explain epilepsy to children. To educate children of the disorder is something that might seem like an difficult task, something thats pushed off to the side for a later date. However, with this book, its a task that doesn't look so daunting. You can explain epilepsy to your children in language that they understand.

I found this book very insightful. Although not having epilepsy myself, I think this book is a good way to explain to children about epilepsy. I, myself, learned quite a bit about the disorder from reading it. Being prepared and knowledgeable is the best way to help someone with epilepsy. This book helps children become prepared.
