  1. Skallagrigg by William Horwood – A story about a boy with Cerebral Palsy in the 1930s and a girl in 1970 who also has Cerebral Palsy and their search for the mystical skallagrigg sees their worlds collide.

    1. Thanks Kate. It’s a firm favourite, I was introduced to it by support worker and it got my interested in the attitudes towards disabilities – thanks for checking out my blog. I’ve been doing blogging since 2013. This is my 4th attempt at a professional blog whilst writing. I also work for a PR agency too xx
