The story Maria tells sends a valuable lesson on many levels. On a personal level it tells us to stick by our dreams, parents must stick up for their kids dreams. On a political level it re-emphasizes the terror and danger posed by violent extremists. And it filled me with joy that this young woman can live in freedom pursuing her goals in Canada.

Personal & educational

Patrick Kennedy's story wrapped within that of his parents and extended family is one in common with so many not as famous or advantaged. The lives of the Kennedy's are tabloid popcorn so that is of interest but this book educates us about the many forms of brain illness- alcoholism, drug addiction, mental illness and post traumatic stress. Patrick turned his personal illness, a "lemon" into lemon aid, a life's work for mental health parity.
