book à Knowing Jesse É Marianne Leone

Death of her child An unforgettable memoir of joy grief and triumph Knowing Jesse unlocks the secret of unconditional love and speaks to all families who strive to do right by their childr I never read the flap or the cover on books I'm going to read and it was a wacky surprise when I did afterwards there are recommendations from Tom Perotta Andre Dubus II Denis Leary Not run of the mill for this type of book Jesses' dad is Chris Cooper and that's not plastered all over the outside either which is a relief I thought I wasn't going to be able to stand reading this but I ended up riveted by it the author really put herself out there without trying to gloss over anything and the section that deals with the school system in Hoboken in the darker days of special ed is unbelievable
