state budget or pay the bills this place is probably disadvantaged than others I can only imagineSusan Nussbaum s debut is an amazing success She manages to tell a sad story with a sense of Digitally Enabled Social Change humor and compassion Loved it Iave very mixed feelings about this book which is narrated by a cast of characters involved in a public The big hat Bob books home for teenagers with disabilities in Illinois On oneand I feel very positively about it in the sense that Nussbaum Urotsukidoji, tome 5 herself a disability activist does a great jobumanizing the lives and the plights of these often forgotten and dehumanized individuals She does an excellent job creating a variety of believable voices However and contrary to the views of an interviewer of Nussbaum I read
