With acerbic wit and a hilarious voice, Shane Burcaw's Laughing at My Nightmare describes the challenges he faces as a 21-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.

I really enjoyed listening to the book and truely recommend buying it! Burcaws sence of humor made me laugh out loud, while it was interesting to hear about the struggle disabled people go through, while growing up in an abled persons world. As I'm a nurse who cared for a young SMA client for a few years, I regret, I didn't read the book earlier.
