In 2010, the Crisp family took precautions to protect their youngest daughter from the H1N1 virus, by getting her vaccinated as recommended by European health care officials. Soon after, their daughter began to experience numerous, unexplainable developmental and neurological setbacks: inability to stay asleep at night, difficulty staying awake during the day, falling, difficulty speaking. The Crisps were losing their daughter with each passing day. Through several months of challenges, misdiagnoses, questions of the mother’s and daughter’s sanity, financial troubles, and uncertainty about their future and their daughter’s health, the Crisp family ultimately found an answer to their daughter’s condition—narcolepsy caused by the H1N1 vaccine.

Such a powerful story. I loved it. For all the books out there to read, an involving narrative that's beautifully written is hard to come by. This book hits all the marks with breathtaking ease. It's fascinating too, considering this author apparently has no prior books to her name. While some stories are just so big they have to be told, and they end up making authors out of ordinary people. Occasionally the storyteller finds a natural gift for serious writing. You see that with this book, with the elegance of its prose, the grace of its voice. By the end you're left moved by the account and longing for more. I hope to see more from Lady Crisp down the road.
