Congratulations to Emily Wing Smith for the release of All Better Now, a memoir about how a near-fatal car accident when she was twelve saved her life.
ALL HER LIFE, EMILY HAS FELT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER KIDS. Between therapist visits, sudden uncontrollable bursts of anger, and unexplained episodes of dizziness, things have never felt right. For years, her only escape was through the stories she’d craft. But it isn’t until a near-fatal accident when she’s twelve years old that Emily and her family discover the truth: a grapefruit-size brain tumor at the base of her skull. In turns candid, angry, and beautiful, Emily Wing Smith’s captivating memoir chronicles her struggles with both mental and physical disabilities, the devastating accident that may have saved her life, and her way through it all: writing.
