This is a hard and very compelling story -- I particularly loved that the audiobook was narrated by the author, as hearing Eddie's voice is really important. I admit I was a little turned off, especially early on, because it started to sound a little like a "it's so hard to get good help these days" sort of story. I had to get out of my own way and listen harder to the larger questions that Ndopu is addressing -- the systemic ableism, the extra helpings of humiliation and hardships that are asked of disabled individuals in every aspect of their lives, the many layers of privilege that continue to stand in the way. It's moving, powerful, and opens a window on a day-to-day grind that many of us never consider until something happens to change the trajectory of our lives.
