Shane Burcaw was born with a rare disease called spinal muscular atrophy. This hasn’t stopped him from doing the things he enjoys – like being an AWESOME author.
I am so glad to read more about this awesome guy. It’s nice that he’s reaching out to a younger audience. He couldn’t do that with his first book because it features some very mature subjects.
In this book, Shane answers his most asked questions. One of the questions was, “Why is your head bigger than the rest of your body?” This question reminded me of the first time I picked up Shane’s memoir and thought, “This guy looks like a Tom Bergeron bobblehead. Anyway, if you want the answer to that question, you’ll have to read this book to find out.
Personally, I would have preferred a book featuring his most ridiculous questions asked. A few questions he answered in his memoir had me falling down laughing. My favorite one was:
Q: “How did you get your disease?”
A: “I was bitten by someone who already had it.”
And I have some great news! Shane is writing another memoir, and it’s coming out this fall! I’ll be sure to review it as soon as possible.
