Here's a post I wrote in July and never posted.
If you have not yet read Same Kind of Different as Me, by Denver Moore and Ron Hall, I highly recommend that you do. In fact, this is an excellent book to listen to on CD, and hearing the story told is even better than reading it. My ten year old son and my twenty year old son both listened to it with me and they both loved it. It is a true story, with the feel of a really good novel. It really challenged me.
