About the Book
Clare is like anyone else. She has thoughts, fears, loves, and hopes. Clare is also in a wheelchair, unable to speak to anyone. Clare wants to be seen for the person screaming inside her head. Trapped in a body she can't control, Clare's mode of communication is severely limited.
Charade is a story meant to be a voice for the voiceless, the forgotten, and the hidden members of society with severe disabilities. It is a heartwarming, as well as heart-wrenching tale about Clare and her family’s journey navigating her life with a disability that often defines her existence.
Charade is for the families and caregivers who are entrenched in the isolation of daily life, managing the reality of disability-- loving their children and advocating for them the best they can. It is also intended to enrich the world with these magnificent lives and bring them out of hiding.
