Mighty Mike Bounces Back: A Boy's Life with Epilepsy by Robert Skead, Mike Simmel

Mike has epilepsy and sometimes it's hard to feel like a "real" kid. He is scared of letting other people know about his disease — or even worse, being seen having a seizure! He is often worried and afraid of what other people will think. Soon Mike's father buys him a basketball, and things begin to change. Mike starts playing basketball at his school, at home — everywhere! Through his growing love and talent for basketball, Mike learns to overcome his worries and to be courageous in the face of obstacles including his epilepsy. Co-written by a real-life basketball star with epilepsy, Mighty Mike Bounces Back is an empowering story written to help kids learn to live comfortably with their epilepsy and to take control of their life.
