Tito is a delightful young man. The world would call him disabled; he's had cerebral palsy since birth, the result of a bungled medical procedure at a hospital in Venice. Tito was born to Anna and Diogo Mainardi, who is one of Brazil's best-known columnists as well as a novelist and screenwriter. Tito is dauntless and spirited. He can walk 424 steps before he falls — but he always falls. Columnist, Novelist, Dauntless, Procedure, Anna, Medical

What the **** is Normal?! by Francesca Martinez  I have ataxic cerebral palsy and am physically very similar to Francesca Martinez, former cast member of Grange Hill. As somebody whose CP is very like Francesca's, I was happy to hear her read her own autobiography (Audible UK)  and identified with almost every word. Written with poignancy and humour, this book is a must for the older teenager, adults who have CP, and for parents. Enjoy!
