Born in Ghana with a deformed leg, Emmanuel was considered “useless” and “a curse,” but not by his mother, Comfort, who “had faith.” She uses tough love to show her son that he can be independent.
When Emmanuel loses his mother as a teenager, he is determined to honor her by showing everyone “that being disabled does not mean being unable.” Emmanuel organizes and completes a 400-mile bike ride across Ghana to bring attention to the difficulties the disabled in the country face. “The young man once thought of as cursed was becoming a national hero.”
The mixed-media illustrations transport you to Ghana and burst with as much faith as Mama Comfort. You can’t help but be inspired by this book.
My daughters liked reading this story even more than the boys in the book club did.

The true story of Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah who with only one leg cycled around Ghana to improve attitudes to disability is a tale worth sharing.
