With acerbic wit and a hilarious voice, Shane Burcaw’s Laughing at My Nightmare describes the challenges he faces as a twenty-one-year-old with spinal muscular atrophy. From awkward handshakes to having a girlfriend and everything in between, Shane handles his situation with humor and a “you-only-live-once” perspective on life. While he does talk about everyday issues that are relatable to teens, he also offers an eye-opening perspective on what it is like to have a life threatening disease.
This is a fantastic read. Following Shane through his day to day life and the complications he encounters leaves one wondering just how he does it. Shane is a great role model for all, young and old. If you read this book you will be hooked on him. If you google him you will find links for his non-profit organization, his twitter account, his blog, his facebook account, numerous videos on youtube, etc. Follow him and see what is happening in his life.
