    "It's so odd to find a book that treats someone with a disability with any shred of dignity. "What I Didn't Say" does that, and more. It's one of the few books my son, in a wheelchair, actually enjoyed. Most are just so cloying and condescending, but Keary manages to avoid that and writes from the heart."
