I am reviewing a copy of Not A Poster Child through She Writes Press and Netgalley:

Francine Falk Allen became sick with Polio at the age of three. She talks about her time in the hospital, relearning to walk using children’s crutches called Kenny Sticks.

Having almost been forgotten for decades, Polio has been brought back into the Spotlight by the anti-vaccination movement. For millions around the world, especially those who have the late effects of Polio, this virus was never old news.

Not A Poster Child is the story of how Francine Falk Allen, tried her best to be a “normie” throughout school and how she finally found her balance in life.

I give Not A Poster Child five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
