Student Review: Laughing at my Nightmare by Shane Burcaw

Cover from RRHS Catalog


Shane is a boy who has been in a wheel chair since the age of two. To function in his everyday life, he has to rely on others to help him do the simple tasks that other people take for granted. Shane shows his optimistic outlook on his life that is getting cut short. This book is one that I highly recommend if you want a personal perspective comedy. Personally, I like the way the writer interacts with the reader throughout the book. Its not your typical perspective of one that has a terminal disease. You would like this book if you like… books such as The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Me Before You By Jojo Moyes.
