#BookReview of Aaron and Me, Works In Progress by Debralynn Fein

Aaron and Me, Works In Progress

About the Book: "He’s so normal. How can anything be wrong?" 

KIM SEGAL, the main character in Aaron and Me, is faced with one of the most horrendous experiences a parent can endure during a baby wellness checkup. A clinical observation shows a couple of innocent cafĂ© au lait birthmarks which could indicate a possible diagnosis of Neurofibromatosis for her 18-month old son, AARON. Kim feels ill equipped to cope with the indefinite nature of the diagnosis, and begins to spiral out of control.

The sense of place she writes about are from the New York metropolitan area, since it is where she is most familiar. She’s e read her work before audiences at the New York Public Library and Montclair Library. All stories have been well received. 
On a personal note, I have been happily married for the past thirty-eight years, and have two grown sons. I had been a kindergarten teacher for many years, and more recently teach English as a Second Language to adults. For hobbies, I like to do needlepoint and knit. Reading is a big focus as well.

My Review: I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began reading this book but was intrigued to learn about a disease I had never heard of. But I seriously couldn't put the book down. The characters were well developed and grew with the story. The emotional roller coaster they go through can truly be felt. This book shows that the parents should not love their children any less with what they were born or not born with. I would consider this book a must read for anyone raising children.
