Mikayla, the illustrator is my daughter
- I remember when Laura approached me about her poem, which then beecame this book. When I first read the very simple yet powerful words, I got goosebumps. And when she asked Mikayla to be the illustrator, Mikayla was thrilled to death. When it came all together, the smile on Mikayla's face ... I'm so proud. I happy that Laura and Mikayla can now help other children!

Great helpful book for the community
- I think it's a great thing to have a book for kids by kids, and I'm sure the artist is very happy to see her work in a published book, and it gives hope to everyone who suffers from disorders and proves that they can accomplish anything they want to as well.
