My Brain Won't Float Away /
Mi cerebro no va a salir flotando
By Annette Pérez
Illustrated by Yolanda V. Fundora
Annie, an eight-year-old girl, gathers the courage to ask her mother, "Why is one of my hands smaller than the other? Why do I fall so much?" What follows is a story of fears, will, self discovery, and finally, triumph. Annette Pérez narrates her true story of growing up with hydrocephalus with humor, honesty, and compassion, and proves with this story that even the simplest act can change one's life forever.
