Review: Carly’s Voice

Carly's Voice Carly’s Voice by Arthur Fleischmann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What appears at first glance to be a seemingly tragic story – a young girl cannot speak or function the way other adolescents her age can – turns into a beautiful story of a voice waiting to be heard. Autism had trapped a young Carly Fleischmann inside a world only she could understand for nearly a decade. But when she turned ten, she showed the world that, even though an oral motor impairment prevented her from speaking, she still had a voice inside just waiting to be heard.
A beautiful story of overcoming challenges from parenting a child with autism to seeing Carly struggle to live with the condition firsthand, this story shows that, even in a most dire situation, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

I am a literature geek working toward my Bachelor's in English with a concentration in writing. I love to read, and I'm always itching to write, especially creatively. I started "The Writer's Library" about three years ago, previously working with a Blogger platform before moving over to Wordpress. While I mainly post reviews of books, occasionally I will go ahead and review works in other media forms as well, such as music and certain television shows. No matter what I'm doing on here, I love to share with anyone who is willing to listen, and I'm excited to finally be on Wordpress!
