"But, you don't have to take my word for it....."

Here are a few of my favorite "survivor books" (job hazard) in case you don't like what I have to say or how I say it, get a copy of these or look for them at your local library(or request they purchase them and help raise awareness):

Gifts from the Broken Jar: Rediscovering Hope, Beauty, and Joy by PJ Long and she writes a guide that helped her reorganize her life Brain on a String: And Other Ways to Stay Organized When Your Mind Isn't
In an Instant: A Family's Journey of Love and Healing by Bob and Lee Woodruff
Over My Head: A Doctor's Own Story of Head Injury from the Inside Looking Out by Claudia Osborn
Where is the Mango Princess? A Journey Back from Brain Injury by Cathy Crimmins
Rebooting My Brain: How a Freak Aneurysm Reframed My Life by Maria Ross
The Other Side of the Rainbow by Mickey Antu-Urias

AND unrelated to brain injury specifically:
The Emotional Struggle by Brandon Ryan

BUT if you want the most wonderfully illustrated children's book out there:
Where is Paco now? Donde esta Paco ahora??  by Cristina Louise and illustrated by Michelle McIlroy!!!

That emotional struggle is a big one.
I like your whole list of books.
Keep up the growth!
